Welcome to Team Allentown... where Tour de Tush began! As we take Tour de Tush on the road this year, join Team Allentown where your fundraising dollars stay in your community to support the colon cancer programs and services there. Funds raised by Team Allentown participants stay in Allentown.
Even though there will not be a physical event in Allentown, it is so important to gather in spirit and purpose, to ride together to help end colon cancer.
A note from your Tour de Tush - Allentown local event director Gale Fritsche:
Hi Everyone, it has been 7 years since my diagnosis of Stage 3 Colon Cancer was found during a routine Colonoscopy. I had no symptoms or family history. It was a wake up call and motivated me to help spread the word and use my story to encourage others to be screened. I founded the Tour de Tush 7 years ago in an effort to help raise funds for awareness activities and to help fund programs for uninsured and underinsured patients receive the screening they need. This year the Tour de Tush is a National virtual event focused on raising funds for a larger audience. We will (hopefully) return to a local event in 2022 as life begins to return to normal.
Together, we can make a difference!
