FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

The Rotary Club of La Crescent is proud to announce the partnership of their 2016 Apple Blossom Bike Tour with LIZFEST.   LIZFEST is a local festival in August dedicated to celebrating the life of Elizabeth Holman Melde, a young woman who died of lung cancer in 2012.  Lizfest is a family fun event with music, food and beverages, as well as a volleyball tournament, a golf tournament and games for the whole family.


The Rotary Club is sponsoring their 4th Annual Apple Blossom Bike Tour and is excited to be a part of LIZFEST.  In addition to supporting the fundraiser to battle cancer, the Rotary Club will dedicate proceeds to Rotary International which supports the eradication of polio throughout the world.


Supporting our efforts this year, three-time Tour de France winner, Greg LeMond, will be joining in the ride this year and then following it up with fun at LIZFEST.    People interested in riding with Greg can sign up for the rides at www.appleblossomtour.org or online at IMAthlete.com.
