The Richard Tom Foundation Board is pleased to announce the First Annual 'Richard's Ride' to be held Saturday, May 21st at Cochrane's ski area in Richmond.
We are hosting rides of different lengths including a 4.4 mile kid's rides, a 17-mile family ride, longer road rides and mountain bike rides (right from Cochrane's!). We are asking for your help in promoting this first-year event in honor of Richard Tom who was killed by a driver last April 26th while riding his bicycle in Hinesburg. This is our largest fund raiser of the year and we are hoping to see many families and cycling aficionados gather at Cochrane's on May 21st.
We would very much appreciate your help with a written, online or broadcast announcement of the ride. Since this is the first ever RICHARD'S RIDE, we are hoping you can help us get the word out far and wide. Please see the attached press release for more information on the ride and the mission of the Richard Tom Foundation.
