Hello everybody, Once again, it's time for the Tour of Litchfield Hills!
As many of you are undoubtedly aware, 5 years ago, my siblings and I laid to rest one of the greatest men ever, one that we were lucky enough to call "Dad". Our family had already been struck by cancer early in our lives when our mother had passed away in 1992.
Over the past four years, me, my brother, sisters and my dad's childhood best friend and his family have won the Mayor's Trophy as the top fundraising team by raising a ton of money!
So this year, we wanna go bigger! I'm still riding my bike up (and thankfully back down) 30 miles of hills in Northwest Connecticut to raise money for The Cancer Care Fund of Litchfield Hills, but this year I want to raise AT LEAST $1,000 (beating the $750 mark that I have hit for the last few years).
Thank you, God Bless and FUCK CANCER!

The Tour's mission is to bring together community resources with the common goal of raising funds to support the care, treatment, education and prevention of cancer for residents living, working, or receiving treatment for cancer in Northwest Connecticut.
