Welcome to the annual Chuck Thomas Memorial Tour De Marco Ride!

For those of you that did not know him - Chuck was a dedicated long time board member with the YMCA and an avid cyclist. Chuck was the best - he had a deep love of family and community. (His wife Sue and family will be at the event)

He was quick witted, loyal, humble, always active and interesting along with being generous – by being generous not just with opening his wallet but with the giving of his time. Chuck truly cared about people and helped whenever he could. You could always count on him.

I feel privileged to have known him and I miss him as do the many others whose lives he touched. I imagine Chuck stays busy doing his “Chuck stuff” angel style! In spirit today Chuck would be so proud to see the continued support for the YMCA which was so much a part of his life. He knew, as we do, that the YMCA has such a positive impact on the lives of people of all ages. So, let’s be like Chuck today and everyday – Be kind, considerate, generous & humble.

Thank you for your support - it can’t happen without you!
