This Saturday's Tara Benefit Jam on February 23, hosted at Rye Airfield in Rye, New Hampshire, will feature a poster signing by Trek free-rider Cam McCaul. With the purchase of each US$3 signed poster, Trek will donate an additional $12. That means that for every poster purchased, Trek will donate $15 to the Tara Llanes Road to Recovery Fund.
"Tara's injury struck a chord with me personally," said Michael Browne, Trek's MTB Brand Manager, "and I've been looking for a way to offer support. When Kyle Ebbett announced his efforts to organize the Tara Benefit Jam, Cam jumped on board. And when Cam told me about it, I knew Trek had to get behind it. This is just a great way to help out a fallen rider who needs every bit of support our community can offer."
"After so many years racing and competing, I just feel it's my responsibility to organize this event," said Ebbett, reflecting on why he decided to get riders together for the competition. "And I love Tara she's a super incredible person who's respected everywhere. I hope for a ton of awareness, and I hope to raise a ton of money. And I know it will succeed, because who doesn't like to watch Cam McCaul ride?"
