Join us at the Union Chappel Vineyards/Bar O Ranch on Saturday, May 6th when Fulshear will hold its 9th annual Michael T. McCann Memorial Bike Ride throughout our great community. This BP MS 150 Recommended Ride will feature a 68, 51, 35 and 19 mile route, beginning at 7:30am. All proceeds of this family event will directly benefit the Fulshear community, as he so cherished.
Dr. Mike McCann passed away after a long, heroic battle with cancer in 2007. He will be remembered as a family man, veterinarian, sailor, grape grower, friend and mentor, who also served as chairman of the Fulshear Planning Commission for many years, dedicating much of his time to the development and growth of the city. An avid bicyclist, he spent many hours each week cycling all while undergoing treatments, a true testament to his strength and abilities. He was an ambassador and statesman who epitomized what Fulshear means to many. A friendly town in a beautiful region, that if we all work together, will grow into a prosperous community that cherishes the simple, good things in life.
Bike for Mike is proud to support Fulshear, with all proceeds directly benefiting special projects and beautification of the city. To date over $140,000 has been donated to the city with ongoing support to many deserving organizations including the public library, Arts Fulshear, Family Hope, the Fulshear Simonton Volunteer Fire Department, the Fulshear Police Foundation, Fulshear Outreach and Development, the Brookwood Community, the Texana Center, Operation Enduring Brotherhood, the Fulshear elementary and middle schools, our local Boy and Girl Scout troops.
We look forward to seeing you on May 6th 2017 in the vineyard, along the course, and the post-ride celebration with music from the Bourbon Street Band.
