Be a Hero Bike Tour

The Be a Hero Bike Tour was a 30 day cycling event organized by Scott Van Duzer, founder of the Van Duzer Foundation. During this ride, members of the Boys and Girls club of St. Lucie County Florida cycled for 30 days from Lake Park, Florida to Washington, DC. to encourage blood donations. The foundation worked to organize blood drives during each stop and challenged other Boys and Girls Clubs across the county to hold blood drives during the 30-day ride.
