Announcing the 2015
Tour de Shuls Connecticut
Sunday, May 31st, 2015
Friends and Fellow Riders:
The 6th annual Tour de Shuls CT will be held on Sunday, May 31st starting/finishing at Beth El Temple in West Hartford CT. More than simply a bike ride, Tour de Shuls is a community event to support Camp Ramah's Tikvah program. The Tikvah (Hope) program serves Jewish children with physical and cognitive disabilities. Participating in the Tour enables Tikvah campers to experience the joys and camaraderie of Jewish summer camp-- swimming, soccer, arts & crafts, singing around the campfire, celebrating Shabbat--by providing scholarships to defray the costs of attending camp.
Ride with us individually, as a family or with a group of friends. Riders will have the choice of 20-35-50 mile rides. All levels of riders welcome. Registration is $72 for adults. For teens and children ages 18 and under, the registration fee is $18. The fee is capped at $125 per family. The registration fee will be waived for any individual who raises and collects at least $100 in contributions. With your help, we hope to raise $10,000 for the Tikvah program.
Tour de Shuls is not a race. Ride with us on West Hartford’s quiet residential streets, through Simsbury’s beautiful suburban neighborhoods and alongGranby’s delightful back roads. So whether you’re an experienced cyclist, an occasional rider, or a mitzvah-minded teen we have a route that’s just right for you. Not riding this year, but still want to be involved in a unique and fun way? Become a virtual rider, and do your part to help us reach our fundraising goals.
Join fellow participants from many Connecticut synagogues for a day of exercise, fun, camaraderie, and bring smiles to the faces of Tikvah, campers. Please register for the Tour today, thanks.
