Tour des Trees
July 31, 2018
HUGE thank you to all those that supported Tour des Trees this year. Your donations totaling over $1000, words of encouragement, training ride company, and tips all meant so much to me. Together, we raised $327,000 for the TREE Fund’s work with tree research and education across the country. It certainly is (tree)teamwork that makes it all possible.Thank you for being part of the OneTreeLove team!
It was a treemendous pleasure to participate in the first half the tour as it rolled through Ohio. It was the first time in the 26 years of the tour history that it came through Ohio. And it was more than a bike ride! Overall, 71 riders participated in the 580-mile tour, as well as participated in 5 yoga classes, planted 11 trees, dedicated 17 trees, and delivered 9 Professor Pricklethron programs.
You can join the treerrific fun next year as the tour goes through Tennessee and Kentucky in September 2019. Don’t want to ride? Be a virtual rider and donation to the OneTreeLove TREE Fund fundraisers throughout the rest of 2018 and 2019.
Join us Saturday, Aug 25, 2018 to celebrate with a picnic!

It is a magical place to challenge yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally in a small community of up to 8 women.
Each day, you will have the option to participate in guided group adventures (or choose a solo adventure, if that’s what you need). Greet the morning with an energizing yoga practice, and set an intention to mindfully nudge your edges. Nourish your body with healthy meals.
