Mount Dora Heroes Foundation Selected as Chamber Charity for 43rd Bicycle Festival

Special "Thanks" to the Mount Dora Area Chamber of Commerce for selecting the Mount Dora Heroes Foundation as the charity for their Annual Bicycle Festival for 2017. "We were so pleased and surprised, to receive a check for $985.00 from all the riders who participated, and for the Chamber for selecting us as this year's charity", said Robert Bell, MDHF's Director. For the past 43 years, thousands of cyclists have enjoyed the scenic rides that Mount Dora has to offer during the Mount Dora Area Chamber of Commerces' Annual Bicycle Festival.

Each year, riders begin downtown at the Chamber and take off for a variety of rides ranging from 11 miles to 100 miles. Riders spend most of their time on the road seeing all that Lake County and Mount Dora, Florida has to offer. Each year, the Mount Dora Area Chamber of Commerce selects one local 501(c) 3 non-profit organization to receive donations collected at the event, and this year, the Mount Dora Heroes Foundation was chosen. We are so honored to have been selected as the 501(c) 3 Charity for the 2017 event.
