The Tour de Scranton….
The Tour de Scranton is an annual non-competitive bike ride for riders of every age and skill level. Designed with a selection of routes and distances, catering to both the novice and experienced rider, anyone can bring a bicycle and join in the fun. The Tour de Scranton also benefits an extremely good cause.... The Erin Jessica Moreken Drug & Alcohol Treatment Fund, Inc. This fund was established in 2002 in memory of Erin, who died at the age of 28 following a drug overdose. You can help raise money for this fund by securing pledges for your ride. A pledge sheet is provided and should be turned in with your application. Riders with pledges of $50 or more are eligible to win one of several bikes, and one of many gift certificates or prizes which will be awarded. The bike ride will be monitored from start to finish by adult volunteers and cyclists at regular check points. It is a safe and enjoyable way to have fun and raise the much needed funding to assist young people who are struggling with the disease of addiction.
The Erin Jessica Moreken Drug and Alcohol Treatment Fund, Inc.
Each year through this event, we have been able to offer scholarships, aid, and drug and alcohol educational programs to a variety of worthy individuals and groups in our community. Pledges to Erin’s Fund will help to fulfill our Mission Statement: "The Erin Jessica Moreken Drug & Alcohol Treatment Fund, Inc. was established to provide charitable gifts to qualified organizations, individuals and their families whose members have been impacted directly or indirectly by the disease of addiction."
