This weekend is the Moab Century Tour in beautiful Moab, Utah. Mark Griffith and Beth Logan work hard each year to organize this tour and the Skinny Tire Festival as a fundraiser for local cancer programs and for cancer research. Here at SGRE we have always supported Mark and Beth and their non-profit organization Skinny Tire Events as they work to raise funds to fight cancer.
Their work has become more personal lately as Arlo has gone through his cancer journey these last few years. Arlo was a key-note speaker at the Skinny Tire Festival a couple of years ago, and has been a recipient of services that are now available in Moab due to funds raised by Skinny Tire Events for the Moab Regional Hospital.
A lot of the contributions made by Sheri Griffith Expeditions to Skinny Tire Events are "behind the scenes", including free use of our equipment (tables, chairs, vans, busses), copy services, rent-free use of our warehouse as a staging location for the Aid Stations, donated time of our drivers and a yearly donation of a 2 person 5 Day Cataract Canyon rafting trip for the Skinny Tire Festival biggest fundraiser.
We appreciate all that Skinny Tire Events is doing for the Moab area, and for the fight against cancer. Over the years that Skinny Tire Events has been working to fight cancer, they have raised over $3.6 Million. When I spoke with Mark this morning, he said that as of today, the Moab Century Tour that is going on this weekend has raised nearly $200,000! We are proud to support such a great organization!
