Hurricane Relief Charity Ride - MLK WEEKEND!
SUNDAY, January 14, 2018
Friends and family members of the Violet Torch Foundation (VTF) have been personally affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The damage to the Leeward Islands (i.e. St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John, Barbuda, Puerto Rico...etc.) is pervasive. All of these islands are continuing efforts to restore electricity and reconstruct power grids. All of these islands are still in need of basic supplies. VTF is committed to giving back to island communities still in desperate need of hurricane recovery funds. We put our heads together and decided to launch the HURRICANE RELIEF CHARITY RIDE.
15 riders are participating in the hurricane relief charity ride and are committed to raising much needed funds to support the cause while supporting Harlem Cycle, a black owned business, during Martin Luther King weekend!

Proceeds will be delivered directly to the Tim Duncan Hurricane Relief Foundation. We are over half way to our goal -- help us reach the finish line!
