Sponsors confirmed for seventh annual Twin Rivers Challenge



Community support remains strong for the upcoming seventh annual Twin Rivers Challenge, a cycling event to benefit student scholarships at Tallulah Falls School.

More than 150 corporate, organization and individual sponsors are now confirmed for the ride set for Saturday, Oct. 23. 

“We are thrilled about how the community has embraced this event over the past seven years,” said President and Head of School Larry A. Peevy.  “With Ron Cantrell Construction, Inc. again making a firm commitment as the presenting sponsor to cover the cost of the ride and Springer Mountain Farms taking care of the post-ride meal, 100-percent of all other donations and support go directly to fund scholarships for motivated students. 

“It’s a great way for cyclists from throughout the Southeast and beyond to enjoy the beauty of Northeast Georgia in the fall,” said Sonya Smith, Executive Director for Advancement. “This event has become a favorite tradition for the TFS family.” 

Many former riders have expressed appreciation for the post-ride experience, with a meal provided along with a warm serving of TFS hospitality.
