Endurance sports and charity events

Greetings All,
My son Josh and I went on the Tour de Tonka, a fundraiser for Minnetonka schools and the local food shelf yesterday. It was a great ride and a beautiful day for cycling. We completed the 44-mile ride with about 500 other people on a rolling course that wound through 4 other municipalities in and near Lake Minnetonka, one of the largest urban lakes in our state. The spirit of this ride was purely recreational which was great. I had never been to this beautiful lake, but these pictures will help you to see that I hope to go back sometime soon.

I enjoy cycling and support charity events that couple cycling (or other exercise) as ways to generate much-needed funds.  In my book it is a win-win for both the organization and of course the participant(s). I plan on doing many more charity cycling events in the future. What about you? Do you have a favorite charity event that encompasses a sport or endurance?
