"The Jim Thorpers" presents a check for $3,000 to the Carbon County Special Olympics. They Also plan to donate to three other non-profits.
"The Jim Thorpers" is a Bicycle Team that competes annually in the Tour de Shore Race from The Irish Pub in Philadelphia to Atlantic City. The race generated over $1 Million this year for the Irish Pub Children's Foundation. Teams each have a fundraising minimum -- for "The Jim Thorpers" it was $40 thousand. Once they Exceed that minimum they begin earning incentives, which they can spend in their home communities. The team earned $10 thousand to donate to charities that benefit children.
