I’m thrilled to support Tour de Pier and its beneficiaries and efforts to raise much-needed funds for cancer research and wellness. As much as I love auto racing, I am also an avid cyclist. Raising funds through physical philanthropy at Tour de Pier is an incredible way to support the cause and help raise awareness for the charities.
