Our Fundraising Event
The Tour of the Litchfield Hills - A Cycling Tour and Walk
One of the fund’s largest and most active financial supporters is the Tour of the Litchfield Hills. This annual tour brings together hundreds of cyclists and their supporters to raise money for The Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills.
The event is not a bike race, but rather a bike tour that consists of 12, 30, 50, 75, and 100-mile routes. There are also 2, 4 and 6-mile walking routes. Both events begin and end at Coe park in downtown Torrington, CT and are followed by a post tour picnic for participants.
The Tour is held annually on the first Sunday in August. For further information call (860) 379-3382 or visit the Tour of the Litchfield Hills website.
The Mission of the Tour
The mission of The Tour is to bring together community resources with the common goal of raising funds to support the care, treatment, education and prevention of cancer for residents living, working, or receiving treatment for cancer in Northwest Connecticut. By donating funds to The Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills, Inc., we will have a positive effect locally, in the Northwest corner, by offering our support to our friends and families living with cancer.
