American cyclist Bobby Julich (CSC), in conjunction with the 13th Annual Tour de Nez, has raised over $5,000 for Project GO, a non-profit aimed at providing rafting and ropes course adventures for disadvantaged youth, during showing of PRO, a cycling documentary, in Reno, Nevada, USA on April 28.
Julich, a Reno resident, donated numerous photos and memorabilia toward a fund-raising silent auction and raffle held during the showing of the documentary. He also signed autographs for eager fans and spoke to the crowd about his recent victories before the screening. "Engaging with physical activity and experiencing the outdoors can change lives," said Julich. "I enthusiastically support the efforts of Project GO. I love Reno and I'm glad to be part of this community."
More than 400 enthusiasts turned out for the event, kicking off the Tour de Nez’s promised "celebration of cycling." The race will be held between June 16-18.
