THE PAINTED TURTLE
ANNUAL TOUR DE TURTLE & TURTLE TREK FUNDRAISER
Charity Event Supports Sending Children with Serious Medical Conditions to Camp

The Painted Turtle invites community members to participate in its Annual Tour de Turtle and Annual Turtle Trek on Saturday, April 27 at its campground in Lake Hughes. Participants will partake in activities ranging from a bike ride through the beautiful Angeles National Forest to a fun walk/run/roll around camp and a festival with lunch, live music, games and more. Rider and volunteer fundraising goes toward sending children living with serious medical conditions to The Painted Turtle free of charge.

As a Tour de Turtle bike ride participant, cyclists can embark on one of three routes - Sport 20, Elite 36 or Pro 72 miles - that are fully staffed with SAG, support vehicles and rest stops. Ideal for athletes and beginners alike, registration is $25 with a $250 fundraising commitment. The top 25 fundraisers will receive a custom jersey and anyone who raises $1,000 or more are provided overnight accommodations at the camp.

In addition to the bike ride, there will be a two-mile walk/run/roll event at The Painted Turtle campsite open to all ages. Perfect for families and children, the Turtle Trek will include iconic camp pit stops around camp with crafts, games, dancing and more. Registration is $25 and no fundraising commitment is required.

"We are so excited to once again invite our neighbors to enjoy Camp and spend a fun day being active with family and friends," says Chris Butler, chief executive officer of The Painted Turtle. "We're proud to be a part of the Northern Los Angeles community and our Tour de Turtle & Turtle Trek event is a great way to learn about the services we provide children and families while also coming together for a great cause."
