Tour de Trike race to benefit United Way of Cass County

Community leaders to participate in the first Tour de Trike race at Ivy Tech Logansport

LOGANSPORT, Ind.—Ivy Tech Community College Logansport will host the first Tour de Trike race on campus beginning at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Four teams will compete in the Tour de Trike to raise funds for the United Way of Cass County. A talented team from Ivy Tech will face off against David Ameen and his cyclists from Logansport Memorial Hospital. The second heat will feature the Logansport Fire Department versus the Logansport Police Department. The winners of the two preliminary heats will compete for the title.

As a side note, the Logansport Police Department team will feature the dynamic dancer Danny Farris.

“We have seen Danny’s dancing skills and we are hoping his tricycle riding skills are at the same level,” said Kevin Bostic, Ivy Tech Logansport vice chancellor and captain of the Ivy Tech team, in a bit of humorous trash talk. “If that is the case, then we don’t have much to worry about.”

In the United Way fundraiser, each team will be seeking donations and for every dollar raised, the team will start one foot in front of the starting line on the north parking lot of Ivy Tech’s Logansport campus. Costumes, shirts, fans, hecklers, cheerleaders and co-workers are all welcome to attend the greatest spectacle in trike racing.

“Please help support your favorite team by making a generous donation,” Bostic said. “One hundred percent of all donations will be given to the United Way.”
