This Saturdayâ€™s Tara Benefit Jam hosted at Rye Airfield in Rye, NH will feature a poster signing by Cam McCaul, Trekâ€™s Freeride Phenom. With the purchase of each $3 signed poster, Trek will donate an additional $12. That means that for every poster purchased, Trek will donate $15 to the Tara Llanes Road to Recovery Fund.
â€œTaraâ€™s injury struck a chord with me personally,â€ said Michael Browne, Trekâ€™s MTB Brand Manager, â€œand Iâ€™ve been looking for a way to offer support. When Kyle Ebbett announced his efforts to organize the Tara Benefit Jam, Cam jumped on board. And when Cam told me about it, I knew Trek had to get behind it. This is just a great way to help out a fallen rider who needs every bit of support our community can offer.â€
â€œAfter so many years racing and competing, I just feel itâ€™s my responsibility to organize this event,â€ says Ebbett, reflecting on why he decided to get riders together for the competition. â€œAnd I love Tara â€“ sheâ€™s a super incredible person whoâ€™s respected everywhere. I hope for a ton of awareness, and I hope to raise a ton of money. And I know it will succeed, because who doesnâ€™t like to watch Cam McCaul ride?â€
The event takes place on February 23rd. The competition starts at 9 pm, but poster sales will be happening prior. Anyone interested in attending can visit www.ryeairfield.com for more details.
