Announcing the 2017 

Tour de Shuls Connecticut

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

Welcome Back to the Tour de Shuls CT!!!

 

Friends and Fellow Riders:

 

The 7th annual Tour de Shuls CT will be held on Sunday, October 8th.  We took a break in 2016, but we are back in action in 2017. 


This year's tour will have 2 bike routes, the 25 mile route will be starting and finishing at The Emanuel Synagogue in West Hartford CT and a 10 mile bike route (5K Run/Walk) will start and finish at Temple Sinai in Newington, CT.


More than simply a bike ride, Tour de Shuls is a community event to support Camp Ramah's Tikvah and Camp Eisner's Chazak programs.  These programs serve Jewish children with physical and cognitive disabilities. Participating in the Tour enables these campers to experience the joys and camaraderie of Jewish summer camp - swimming, soccer, arts & crafts, singing around the campfire,  and celebrating Shabbat, by providing scholarships to defray the costs of attending camp.

   

Ride with us individually, as a family or with a group of friends. All levels of riders are welcome.  


Registration is $54 for adults. For teens and children ages 18 and under, the registration fee is $36.  The fee is capped at $126 per family. 


The registration fee will be waived for any individual who raises and collects at least $100 in contributions. 


With your help, we hope to raise at least $10,000 for these great programs.

 

Tour de Shuls is not a race.  Ride with us on West Hartford’s quiet residential streets, newly marked bike lanes, and the CT FasTrack off road Walk/Run/Bike Path that safely begins/ends in Newington and runs 4.5 mi to New Britain and back.


So whether you’re an experienced cyclist, an occasional rider, or a mitzvah-minded teen we have a route that’s just right for you.  Not into riding this year, but still want to be involved in a unique and fun way? Run or Walk on the path, and do your part to help us reach our fundraising goals. 


Join fellow participants from many Connecticut synagogues for a day of exercise, fun, camaraderie, and bring smiles to the faces of special needs campers.


Please register for the Tour today.


Sincerely,

 

Jeffrey Singer

Tour de Shuls CT Chairperson
