This Weekend's Tour Des Chutes Bike Ride Celebrates Ten Years of Helping Cancer Survivors


1500 participants are expected to come out for the 5 K and 100 mile bike ride.

 

All the funds raised will stay locally to help cancer survivors.

 

Some of the money goes to the cancer suvivor proram at St. Charles and some will go to the Pediatric Foundation that helps people who have to travel outside central Oregon for treatment.

 

In 2005, cancer survivor, Gary Bonacker started the Tour Des Chutes as a labor of love.  He loves doing it every year.

 

"Whether you ride or walk, a lot of people who are in treatment are going to show up.  It is very moving as they come across the finish line and we hand them a yellow rose.  Personally, it's one of the best days of my life and for a lot of people, it's one of the best days they have too."

 

Last year the Tour Des Chutes raised 100-thousand dollars and Bonacker expects to raise as much this year.
