Attn: Riders, Runners and (Not Kemba) Walkers
There will be rides of 10, 25, 50 and 75 miles and a 5K walk/run. Walkers are encouraged to bring their children and/or their dogs. The day will culminate with a summer cookout featuring the famous House of Barbeque, hot-air balloon rides, ice cream provided by Ben and Jerry's and live music by the Timmy Maia Band.
Calhoun will be riding, along with several of his assistants and former players. In the past, Ray Allen, Kevin Ollie and others have taken part in the event. Jim's wife, Pat Calhoun, along with Joe D'Ambrosio and Kevin Nathan will be leading the walk.
