(Rock Island, IL) -- The 7th annual Tour de Brew QC raised money to battle cancer as over 300 bicyclists competed in the 52-mile charity event.
Hosted by Katie's Club charity, this year's event aided the Children's Cancer Connection and LIVESTRONG at the Y of the Quad Cities.
“I lost my daughter in 2007 to an inoperable brain tumor. That’s why this all started,” says Tina Anderson, founder of the event. “My friend Shelly who helped fund the ride back in 2014, is a cancer survivor, but everyone has their reason for being out here today and it’s amazing to hear those stories."
Since starting Tour de Brew in 2014, the event has raised over $100,000 for several cancer programs.
