Back from the outstanding York Tour de Pink presented by Hershey’s. The finish at Hershey’s Chocolate World was sweet in many ways. As you can tell by my image of the elated and proud women cancer survivors, to ride and finish the 200-plus miles in four days was yet another victory in the fight against cancer. Both men and women joined in a group of over 40 riders, supported in first-class style by the team from G4 Events. www.g4events.com.

The York Tour de Pink event is a fundraiser for the Young Survival Coalition www.youngsurvival.org. The YSC is the only international network of breast cancer survivors, medical professionals and supporters dedicated to young women affected by breast cancer. In 1998, the YSC began with a group of 11 women. Today, the YSC has more than 10,000 members in 30-plus countries. Through action, advocacy and awareness, the YSC seeks to educate and influence the medical, research, breast cancer and legislative communities to address breast cancer in women 40 and under, and to serve as a point of contact for young women living with breast cancer.

It was a great experience for us hard-working G4 crew, and so rewarding to be able to support these dedicated riders. It was a unique and special experience for all, and I encourage you to join us for the 2007 ride.

The countryside was absolutely gorgeous. You can follow the Link below to see a ton of images of the ride in my Smugmug gallery. In particular, take a look in the first two or three pages, at the beautiful path they rode on during one segment of the four-day ride.
