Join us for the 8th Annual Tour de Turtle charity bike ride and 3rd annual 2-mile Turtle Trek hosted by The Painted Turtle, an innovative camp for children with serious medical conditions, on Saturday, April 27, 2019.

Riders can choose from three fully-supported routes (Sport 20-miles, Elite 36-miles, and Pro 72-miles) that start/finish at the camp facility in Lake Hughes, pass by the Antelope Valley poppy fields and go through the beautiful Angeles National Forest. We would like to invite you to join other cyclists for this scenic and challenging bike ride, all to raise important funds that help send children and their families to camp.

For those that don't want to cycle, we have the Turtle Trek! Walk, run and roll around camp visiting stations and participating in fun activities like Silly Hair and so much more! Afterwards, join everyone for lunch and music!

When campers enter The Painted Turtleís gates, they put aside their medical conditions and experience a world filled with camp fun, camaraderie, and the freedom to just be a kid. By participating in the Tour de Turtle ride, you're supporting our efforts to help campers overcome the challenges they deal with day in and day out - and this year, the Margaret M. Bloomfield Family Foundation is matching those funds up to $25,000 to help bring even more kids to camp!

A member of the SeriousFun Childrenís Network of camps founded by Paul Newman, The Painted Turtle provides a year-round, life-changing environment that allows children to participate in an authentic camp experience by supporting their medical needs and offers their families care, education, and respite. All campers and their families attend free of charge.

Anyone may register as a team or individual at Please feel free to contact me anytime to discuss participating further 310-451-1353 ext. 112 or
