Tour de Ted participants, including me, have joined because we’ve been affected by cancer in some way, and because the Tour de Ted event gives us the power to fight back. This is my opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for important cancer research.
Edward Jones is celebrating the life of its second managing partner, Ted Jones, and his vision of serving clients in local communities by hosting a nine-city bike tour in Texas. We call it Tour de Ted – Ride the Lone Star.
Tour de Ted’s focus is to raise funds for cancer research. Each city has selected a charity to receive the funds that are raised.
In addition to giving back to the community by helping to create a cancer-free world, the mission of Tour de Ted is to celebrate firm milestones. With more than 1,000 offices, Texas has the greatest number of Edward Jones branch teams, which makes it an exciting destination for our second Tour de Ted.
