Why 72 Hours To Key West You May Ask?
The 72 Hours To Key West Charity Bike Ride is the brain child of Tampa Bay cyclist Kevin Bupp. Kevin, an avid cyclist and triathlete, created this epic event to share his passion and energy, as well as make a difference by giving back to the less fortunate through his favorite charity.
Kevin’s charity of choice is one in which he’s had personal involvement as a volunteer over the last 11 years. The Tiny Hands Foundation has provided a holiday meal to over 25,000 children and families during the holidays since its inception 15 years ago. The foundation supports single-parent households with children and delivers beautifully decorated holiday meal baskets with a simple quote: “This is from someone that loves you”.
Kevin’s vision with the 72 Hours To Key West bicycle ride is to reach out to the increasing number of cyclist within the state and beyond and help create an additional support infrastructure that will assist The Tiny Hands Foundation in feeding many more families in need each and every holiday season.
