In the spirit of community and giving back, the 13th Annual Tour de Nez has announced plans to collaborate with the Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund, Project Go and the Northern Nevada Food Bank. Proceeds from various races and events during the Tour de Nez, taking place June 16-18 in Reno, Nevada, USA, will be donated to each organization.
A portion of the entry fees from the Bike Messenger Race will go to benefit the Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund, a fund that assists bike messengers injured on the job with medical bills and expenses. All of the tips made from the sale of mint juleps (the signature drink of the Tour de Nez) and beer will be donated to the Northern Nevada Food Bank, an organization which provides nutritional meals and food to residents in Northern Nevada. Project Go, a non-profit providing affordable adventure programming for the disadvantaged and underserved youth population of Northern Nevada and Northern California, will receive a portion of the entry fees from the Century Ride.
