This October, Edward Jones will celebrate the life of the firm's second managing partner, Ted Jones, and commemorate his unique vision of serving clients in rural communities by hosting a multi-city bike tour in Texas. The event's focus is to raise funds for cancer research, the disease that claimed Ted's life more than 20 years ago. This is a celebration in Texas with financial advisors, branch office administrators, clients, families and friends.
Our inaugural the Tour de Ted: Ride the Wire event in 2012 raised more than $360,000, which directly funded the mission of five cancer research organizations. We were overwhelmed and grateful for the generosity shown by the riders and their supporters and are looking forward to riding again in October for cancer research!
The 2014 tour, aptly named Tour de Ted - Ride the Lone Star, will begin in Houston on Oct. 11 and stop in nine communities, including Austin, College Station, San Antonio and Waco, before ending in Dallas/Fort Worth on Oct. 19 at Texas Motor Speedway, 545 Lone Star Circle, Fort Worth, TX 76177.
