Dear Friends,

As many of you know, Dylan Connelly received a fatal diagnosis in 2013 and a group of Dylan's family and friends founded an all-volunteer, community-based organization – BraveheartsFODC – to honor Dylan’s legacy and help kids with terminal illnesses and their families. Thus was born the Bravehearts ride, an annual Bike Ride & Family Day at Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA in July (it lands on July 13 this year and we'd love to have you there). 100% of the proceeds go to Camp Sunshine – a very unique retreat on Sebago Lake in Maine for kids with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

And just who is Team Tony and why is donating through the team a special way to support this cause?  Read on.

Below a Ramble about a Great Soul who left too early and will never be forgotten. Thank you for getting here, we all loved Tony so much and this year 2019 we have formed Team Tony to raise money for Camp Sunshine…..it is what Tony wanted…he came each and every year to Bravehearts, he camped in his car, he brought down great VT beers and shared, he told stories, he passed on love and hope, we all listened and joined in where needed but his memory somehow was always the best….he stayed up way too late but then got up early and rode , of course Tony raised money but it was his spirit here at Bravehearts, the Stories and the Smile that we cherished the most……..he was Tony and that was all we ever wanted….he is so missed but we can honor his memory…please do what you can and please come this year and tell a story, offer a hug to someone you both knew or meet someone new here at the ride that will tell you a story about Tony….Team Tony is who we all are…….We love you Brother.
