Cycle the rural country–side and farms of Orange, Chatham and Alamance Counties.
People love the area, it is beautiful and full of rolling hills.
Benefits the National Foundation for Transplants and the MS Society of the Greater Carolinas Chapter.
Many of you know someone with MS or have MS, but do you know someone who needs an organ transplant. Several years ago, I saw a news clip on a family raising money through a bake sale to fund their dad's heart trantsplant. Glen is the dad and still does not have the money for a heart transplant. He needs to raise $35,000 and anti-rejection medicine costs about $20,000/year. His wife and daughter help out with Tour d Orange and value your support! Last year a few people donated $500, but any amount is welcome! This year if you donate $50 directly to his account via credit card or check and send a receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org, you can ride for free. You can also use it as a tax write-off. glens page
$4,100 went to the National MS Society and $750 to Glen Newhart.
Wow, we did well, for only 40 riders we made $198 for the National Foundation for Transplants and $895 for the MS Society. ($1,045 was raised for MS and $150 subtracted to pay for the rental of the Activities Center in August.) Pretty great. No other funds were deducted for expenses. The weather was fantastic and there was a lot of good feedback; all enjoyed. Thank you for supporting this event. Honey suckle smelled great along the route.
