SCUGOG: The United Way of Durham Region will be holding the 10th annual Tour de Perry Trike Race and Barbecue, on Thursday, September 7th.
The event, which annually kicks off the United Way’s fall campaign, will run from noon until 2 p.m., on Perry St., between Queen St. and North St. The event pits teams of citizens, business owners and politicians against each other in tricycle races.
Robert Howard, of United Way, said he has seen the event grow from when it debuted ten years ago.
“Its grown nicely every year. We are pleased with the growth and the enthusiasm for it,” he said.
He also explained why he thinks people should come out to this year’s event.
“They are going to have a good time. They are going to get some fresh air, meet their neighbours, watch an interesting event, grab a bite to eat, and feel good about the fact they helped launch the United Way’s fall campaign.”
As of press time, there are 14 teams registered for the event. For those who have interest in registering a team, contact Cheryl Henderson, at 905-718-8298.
