Tour De Shore
The 28th annual Tour de Shore raised $820-thousand for the nonprofit Irish Pub Children’s Foundation.
Overcast skies didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of over 2,000 bikers helping to raise money for charities that help the children of fallen firefighters and police officers.
Police say they have taken a suspect into custody in connection with the theft of some high-end bicycles that were stolen from a storage area at the Irish Pub in center city.
Police also say several bikes have been recovered.
Police in Philadelphia continue to search for the suspect or suspects responsible for stealing 15 bicycles following the Tour De Shore charity ride on July 28.
The annual 65-mile Irish pub Tour de’ Shore bike ride to Atlantic City reached its goal to raise $600,000 for children’s charities before the event concluded.
The 25th running of the Tour de Shore is coming up in late July to benefit area children’s charities.
“All of our money stays local. In the first 24-years, we’ve raised in excess of $2.2 million.”
Law enforcement officials and police from all over the Philadelphia region headed to Atlantic City to raise money for police charities for children like the Police Athletic League.
More than 1,300 people will ride from Philadelphia to the Jersey Shore this weekend in the 24th annual Irish Pub Tour De Shore.
