28th Annual TREK 100 Ride for Hope
Saturday June 3, 2017

So far, I have not received information about the amateur radio volunteers that help out.

Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre is supposed to be riding it this year!

Website: www.trek100.org/index.html

From their website:
Join "over 2,000 riders in the 28th Annual TREK 100 Ride for Hope. This great Ride benefits the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc.) which is a great charity dedicated to helping children battling cancer and blood disorders like aplastic anemia and sickle cell. The TREK 100 is the largest annual fund-raiser in the 40 year history of the MACC Fund. It has helped raise almost $14 million in net proceeds since 1990. Trek Bicycle Corp. of
Waterloo, WI is synonymous with excellence in cycling and the MACC Fund is synonymous with supporting excellence in childhood cancer and blood disorder research. Ironically both Trek and the MACC Fund started in 1976 and they have been linked to helping children for nearly three decades."

"The MACC Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation which supports research in Wisconsin in the
MACC Fund Center at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, the MACC Fund Research Center of the Medical College of Wisconsin and in the MACC Fund Childhood Cancer Research Wing at the University of Wisconsin’s Carbone Cancer Center. "
