Tour de Slate raises $27k for Teen Challenge Vt.

The 2020 Tour de Slate “ride to end addiction” has ended, and the numbers are good .

$27,031 was raised for Teen Challenge Vt. The money was presented on Aug. 31. The numbers break down like this: $26,031 will be matched by a matching donor for Teen Challenge. $1,000 was advanced to Teen Challenge back in March when Covid-19 first erupted. They were in financial crisis and the cause had some commercial donations already collected so they were advanced that sum. They are extremely grateful for the kind response from the local business community.

Over $7,000 was raised from Facebook fundraiser pages that folks set up.

Even though their rider base was down due to the virus, rider fundraising was way up! So thank you riders for heeding the call and stepping up. There weren’t many virtual riders, but they also brought in over $5,000.

This ongoing need is great and Tour de Slate would like to thank everyone who raised money, as well as their many volunteers who stepped up and helped to make the event happen.

Tour de Slate will return Aug. 7, 2021.
