Fabulous Fourth Bike TourPublished 10:46am Wednesday, August 29, 2012
This letter is written to congratulate those responsible for the success of the 29th annual Fabulous Fourth Bike Tour. The event was supported by many local sponsors and spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Tryon. Katie Malone, director and coordinator, provided expertise and organizational skills, which resulted in a ride enjoyed by all.
Proceeds from the tour benefited Tryon Rotary Club’s “Gift of Life” program. This program was established to provide funds to families with a child needing special medical that may have been unaffordable without assistance.
The program has provided assistance to five families to date. A search committee continues to seek other qualifying recipients. Funds raised by the Bike Tour will allow treatment of more children in our region. To qualify for the program, a family must reside in Tryon, Landrum, Saluda or the Mill Spring area and have financial need.
All communication and treatment provided are considered confidential.
Potential contributors to the “Gift of Life” program should contact a member of the Rotary Club of Tryon. Monies are managed by the Rotary Club Foundations and decisions to provide funds for a child are made by the committee.
- Dr. Joe Boals
