Pink Ribbon Bike Parade held June 10 at Bijou Park

The Fighting Chance Committee of Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe invites the community to participate in a Pink Ribbon Bike Parade on June 10, the 10th anniversary f the abduction of Jaycee Lee Dugard.

Children of all ages are invited to decorate their bikes in “Jaycee pink” and bring them to the South Tahoe Middle School at 1 p.m. Club members will be on hand to assist in bike decoration. The parade will begin at the school and proceed down Lake Tahoe Boulevard to Rufus Allen Boulevard and on to the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library, where commemorative activities will take place and refreshments will be served. The parade will debut the Fighting Chance car donated by El Dorado County. Terry Probyn, Jaycee’s mothers, is expected to participate.

A Fighting Chance is a copyrighted Soroptimist program that empowers children in grades three, four and five to assist in their own safety if faced with an abduction situation. The program currently reaches children in Lake Tahoe Unified and Douglas County schools. The program is taught at the Douglas County valley schools by Soroptimist International of Carson Valley.
