Lori Brockelbank, '94In October 2015, Lori Brockelbank, '94, rode in the STIHL Tour des Trees -- a roughly 575-mile ride that went from Orlando to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- for the third year in a row. The Tour benefits the The TREE Fund, which works to sustain the world’s urban forests by providing funding for scientific research, education programs, and scholarships related to arboriculture and urban forestry. Lori was one of six riders from New York in the ride, which included 85 total riders. Along the way, 12 trees were planted, three of which were memorial trees.

"I want to thank each and every one of my supporters for my third year riding for the Stihl Tour des Trees," Lori said in a blog about her experience. "The 2015 Tour was amazing and filled with many new experiences."

Lori plans on riding in the 2016 Tour, which will be a 7-day, 560-mile tour of the Piedmont region of North Carolina and will dip down to Camden, SC.
