Team Whale's Tail 2
Dear Family and Friends,
We participate as a family in the Tour De Pier every year. The Tour De Pier is a unique fundraising event, benefitting 3 cancer related foundations. We are getting ready for our 6th year of riding in place to move charity forward, with the goal to raise money to help eradicate cancer.
In 2014, we started writing names of people we honor on our shirts. Some are current Fighters, others are Survivors, but sadly, there are those who have lost their battle with cancer. The list keeps growing year after year, and it needs to STOP! This year we have two new Fighters who will be in our thoughts every minute we are on those bikes: Mike's parents' sister-in-law Joan, and a friend who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
We are boldly asking you once again for your contribution. Any amount is extremely appreciated!
If you live in or near Manhattan Beach, we encourage you to come take a look. It is such a special and uplifting event. There are hugs, there are tears, but there are many smiles, and we leave every year feeling incredibly inspired and re-energized. The Tour De pier is special to us because it is held in one of the most beautiful spots in the world, it is organized by local families, and it brings our community together in a way very few other events can.
Mike, Patrice, Frédérique, Sophie, Lars
