On Friday July 30th, head out to Marion Square between 4 and 7 p.m. to show support for Darkness to Light's cross-county cycling awareness tour called Pedal for Prevention.

Three local volunteers, Tyler Gilliam, Landon Phillips and Mike Allen are cycling 4,000 miles across America in an attempt to raise $40,000 for Darkness to Light’s child sexual abuse prevention scholarships. The ride is fueled by donations - every $10 received propels the boys one mile towards their final West Coast destination. As a sendoff, Darkness to Light is hosting a family friendly get together complete with giveaways, games, food, live music and more.

To entice you even further, we've just found out Jack’s Cosmic Dogs is catering the event, and The V-Tones will be playing live from the park. The Bicycle Shoppe will be performing free bike tune-ups while Cupcake is bringing “mini’s” for desert. M. Dumas & Sons will be offering a sale for event attendees, and Five Loaves Café will be giving out coupons.
