Tour de Forks features a 5-mile walk/run and a 5-mile and 12-mile bike ride. Rest and water stops are available along each course. The Safe Kids Coalition will sell bike helmets before the ride.
The Altru Breast Cancer Coalition began in 1995 with a grant from the Altru Health Foundation. The coalition's purpose is to provide mammograms to women between the ages of 40 and 50 who have no health insurance or cannot afford to pay for a mammogram. Women who meet certain financial criteria pay only $5 for a mammogram through the coalition.
Registration forms for the Tour de Forks are available at Altru Family Practice Center, UND Student Health, Altru's WorkLife Center or online at www.altru.org.
