Thank you for visiting my Tour of the Litchfield Hills fundraising page. Not only is 'The Tour' a great fundraising event for Cancer Care, this year the cause became a little more personal for me. 2 months ago I was diagnosed with Leukemia. My sister, Betsy, has ridden in this fundraiser before, but this year is a little different. She's leading a team of (8?) cyclists this year and I've paid their entry fee so they can focus solely on seeking pledges from their friends.
Please consider joining me in sponsoring Team Joe so that together, we can raise funds for cancer care to help future generations be cured of cancer.
Tour of the Litchfield Hills 2019
The Tour is a non-competitive 12, 30, 50, 75 and 100 mile bike ride through the scenic Litchfield Hills for riders of all ability levels. For walkers and runners, the Tour also offers 2, 4 and 6 mile routes through downtown Torrington. This year's Tour will be held on Sunday, August 4th.
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. By donating funds to The Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills, Inc., we will have a positive effect locally, in the Northwest corner, as our friends and families battle the disease.
