Barth Vision & Optical is proud to announce they will be a platinum sponsor of the Tour Dr Fuzz 2021. This year, the tour will be honoring first responders for a very special Tour de Fuzz ride on Saturday, September 11, 2021.

The Tour de Fuzz (Tdf) has been described as a “one-of-a-kind” event and the “FUNNEST RIDE” in Northern California. Some say it’s the finish-line party celebration BBQ, prepared by local chefs, with unlimited sides, local IPA beer, wine and ice cream. Others claim it’s our scenic wine country routes and full-service rest stops. While many riders simply enjoy the SAG (Support & Gear) vehicles with off-duty cop/cyclists and the police swag giveaways. Regardless of your reason(s), it has been the cycling support that makes it possible for Chaplains to serve our community.

How you can get involved

Although the Tour is full, Santa Rosa Orthopaedics urge people to consider donating money to this great community service. 100% of funds raised benefit the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Service in Sonoma County (LECS). Through 36 academy-trained, full time volunteer chaplains, service is provided to support first responders, law enforcement, emergency personnel, their families and members of our community who find themselves in the midst of tragedy and loss. During this last tough year, the Chaplains responded 27/7/365 to suicides, covid-19 deaths and homes lost to wildfires.
