Members of the Z Tour Bike Ride Steering Committee recently presented the Zearing Child Enrichment Center (ZCEC) staff and Board of Directors with a check for $21,000 generated from the 2013 event. These proceeds have been earmarked to enhance the safety and security for the children who utilize ZCEC on a daily basis. With these proceeds, the three-year total donated to ZCEC by the Z Tour Bike Ride is more than $31,500. Presenting the check are Brian Church (from left), Z Tour Bike Ride director, Jan Milles, Dr. Barb Swalve, Don Schiff, Peg Maciejewski, Dr. Richard Everett, Dennis Toth, Mike Judge, Heidi Lott, ZCEC director, and Lisa Vincent, ZCEC office manager.
