Hour 1: "Congregation"
We will honor the powerful intersection of the Battlers, the Supporters, the Warriors and the Givers. It takes all of us, gathering together with our hearts, heads and energy, to move the needle in the fight. Our power is our Congregation.
Hour 2: "Rally"
With high energy and upbeat spirit, we will come together as one to "Rally" in the fight against cancer.
Hour 3: "Pulse"
At the heart of our fight is the "Pulse" that keeps us going. Our community vibration, our sound, and our healing waves will beat strong.
Hour 4: "Harmony"
Our simultaneous actions and "notes" will strike a harmony that will be heard throughout the South Bay. Side by side we will celebrate our collective spirit and unity.
Hour 5: "Revelry"
It's time to get wild in celebration of the 5th hour of the 5th Tour de Pier. As the culmination of the hard work of our entire TdP community, we will pedal, dance and party as we cheer on all those affected by cancer and all those who have come together to make a difference.
