Where do the Tour de Fronds proceeds go?

 

Tour de Fronds began in 1998 and was supported by the communities of Glendale, Umpqua Velo Bicycle Club of Roseburg, and Powers Action Team.  In 2013, Powers assumed sole leadership of the event.  Tour de Fronds is completely run by volunteers who willingly donate their time, energy, and service to help produce a top-notch event.  After all expenses are taken from the Registration Fee, the remaining proceeds are distributed to local service organizations.  These groups are dedicated to the improvement, support, and welfare of the community

of Powers.
