VIDEO: Tour de Komen riders sprint through Clay County Saturday
The Tour de Komen's annual 100-mile cycling event to raise funds for Komen Central Indiana came through Clay County Saturday.
Officers from Clay County Sheriff's and Brazil Police departments joined Indiana State police to escort cyclists along US 40 from the Putnam/Clay to the Clay/Vigo county lines, where the Vigo County Sheriff's Department took over the escort into Terre Haute.
The ride for Breast Cancer Awareness started in Fishers at 8 a.m., and was joined by a group of breast cancer survivors alongside the 'Engine of Hope' - a big, pink fire truck - as they crossed the finish line at Saint Mary of the Woods College.
The approximate 6-hour ride averages a pace of 18-20MPH with four scheduled stops to refuel.
It's not a race. It's a group effort that believes, "We don't beat breast cancer alone; we do it together."
