Tour de Ted participants, including us, 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 our opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for important cancer research. Go to http://tourdeted.com/ for more details about the ride.
Our branch team is participating in the Corpus Christi Ride. We are raising funds for the The Ready or Not Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to the funding of scientific research that targets better treatments and a cure for pediatric brain cancer. Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer death in children under the age of 19. They have committed their funding to the Texas Children's Cancer Center Glioma Research Program.

Donations will also benefit the Vannie E. Cook Jr. Children's Cancer and Hematology Clinic in McAllen, TX, through their partnership with Texas Children's Cancer Center. Learn more at http://www.vanniecook.org/
