Tour de Pier nears $10 million

Over 1,000 cyclists helped raise over $1 million at the 9th Annual Manhattan Beach Tour De Pier on Sunday. Team Uncle Kory was the largest overall fundraiser, with $160,156. Bay Club spin instructor PK Kessel and his spin class was the largest fundraiser among individuals. 

The Mira Costa and UCLA cheerleading squads rallied the cyclists, who included business leaders, elected officials, and first responders.

Tour de Pier has raised over $9 million over the past nine years. Next year’s 10th anniversary goal is $10 million. Proceeds benefit the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research; the Cancer Support Community Redondo Beach; and the Uncle Kory Foundation for Brain Cancer Research. ER
