The Tyler Foundation and the Etape
Next month two good friends of mine, James and Dominic will be riding in this year’s Etape. The ride is 174km (108 miles) long with 4,000m (13,123 ft.) of climbing. It finishes on the top of the legendary Col de Tourmalet. They are raising funds for the Tyler Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to support children with cancer in Japan and their families by improving quality of life during treatment and by ensuring a smooth transition to normal life after treatment. I am writing this article to ask if anyone can help them raise money. If you’re able to help them, please visit this link to the event and click on one of their names. shine on etape

To spread awareness please feel free to copy this entry to you blog, facebook, twitter, or any other media as this really is an amazing cause that is in need of funds, 100% of what you donate goes to the charity as both Dominic and James have paid 100% of the entry fees, flights and accommodation.
