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

More than 130 corporate, organization and individual sponsors are now confirmed for the ride set for Saturday, Oct. 24. 

“We are thrilled about how the community has embraced this event over the past six 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.”
