The “Rings of Strength Tour” name originates from the story of Maggie and Odie—two beautiful children, diagnosed with cancer, who formed a deep bond that was illustrated by a ring of strength that Maggie gave to Odie during his fight for life.

When Odie passed away in 2011, his mother returned the ring to Maggie so that she could continue to be strong in her own battle with cancer.

In honor of their fight, JFC is proud to invite you to stand alongside children in need by sponsoring the Rings of Strength Tour. Your participation will provide rings of strength and hope for children in need.

On Thursday, June 2, 2016, the third Rings of Strength event will kick-off at Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel Casino at the early hour of 5:30 a.m. Participants can choose one of two bike routes, a challenging 50K route in the scenic Red Rock Canyon, a moderate 15K ride, or a brisk 5K run or a relaxing 5K walk along the always interesting Las Vegas strip.

Participants can also sign up for 90 minutes of yoga with instructor Suzanne Adams of Assurant Solutions. The session will begin at 9:00 a.m. and mats will be provided.

Bike rentals are available for the event and participants can also ship their own bikes.
