Tour de Nez Continues to Race Forward



Renown Health Sponsors Again for 25th Anniversary

Renown Health has announced they will be continuing to support the Tour de Nez for the second year in a row by providing the organization with a sponsorship of $20,000. Renown’s generosity will ensure that the Tour de Nez organization is able to continue to give back to Reno by promoting cycling through several community events.

“2017 will mark the 25th Anniversary of Tour de Nez and it’s our year to make a difference throughout our Reno Community with a focus on health and wellness through movement,” said Bubba Melcher, Executive Director of Tour de Nez.

Movement is a word that can carry various meanings. It can simply mean a change in the position of your body, it can refer to the moving parts of a mechanism that creates motion, or it can embody a group of people working together toward a shared vision.

“We are thrilled to be the Title Sponsor once again of the Tour de Nez. Helping people live a healthy lifestyle is a major goal of Renown Health, said Wendy Damonte, Renown Health Vice President of Advocacy and Community Partnerships. “This partnership will help get people of all ages out on bikes, riding with friends and family, and enjoying the benefits of exercise.”

To help further improve bike-ability for residents in northern Nevada, a portion of Renown Health’s sponsorship for 2017 will go towards adopting a spot along the Truckee River through the Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful program. Tour de Nez will host several river clean-ups throughout the year to help preserve and maintain this important public space.

“Giving back to the community is an important part of the bigger picture for us,” said Melcher.

“We are so thankful we have been blessed with the support of our community and would not be able to do this without Renown,” said Melcher. “Renown and Tour de Nez share the same vision of promoting healthy living through physical activity, throughout the Reno community. We’re excited to keep this important partnership going for years to come.”
