600 Cyclists Participated in 3rd Annual Tour Latino
On Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016 600 cyclists gathered at the third annual Tour Latino to ride 10, 25, 60 and 100-mile routes across the hills of Lake County. Before sunrise, cyclists of different nationalities, ages and levels of cycling experience came from different regions of Florida as well as from other states to gather at Clermont’s Waterfront Park.
During the ride, event volunteers offered support to the athletes in strategic locations with beverages and food specifically chosen to help fuel their energy. After riding, the cyclists enjoyed a Latin celebration that included domino games, local business and sponsor exhibits, music, and food donated by Zaza New Cuban Diner. The closing ceremony was led by Univision Orlando Anchor Paul Gamache. To conclude the ceremony, winners were announced among the cyclists for medals presented by age group and drawing prizes.
The 2016 Tour Latino undoubtedly celebrated and promoted the mission of Prospera (then HBIF) and the Hispanic culture, and raised funds that will help the nonprofit organization to continue supporting Hispanic entrepreneurs to create and retain jobs in Florida.
The 2016 Tour Latino was made possible thanks to these sponsors’ support: Conrad Santiago & Associates with Ameriprise Financial, Univision Orlando, Fields BMW, Florida Hospital, David’s World Cycle, Orlando Health, Marchena & Graham, Florida Dairy Farmers, BB&T, and Orange Cycle, among others.
