One Woman's ride to inspire love and support for Rhode Island's nursing home community - and advocate the work of TLC4LTC, a volunteer group who strive to fulfill the dreams and wishes of RI's nursing center employees and residents in need. TLC4LTC has donated thousands of dollars to nursing home employees who had a special wish or need and granted many heartfelt wishes to nursing home residents since its establishment in 2018.
On Saturday, September 12th, Dianna Shaw will cycle 100 miles in beautiful South County to raise funds and support the work of TLC4LTC, a non-profit volunteer group that strives to fulfill the dreams and wishes of RI's nursing center employees and residents in need.
Dianna spent 25 years working in RI’s nursing homes and knows first hand the dedication and compassion of its staff. In her current role with a health insurance provider, she was frustrated at her inability to be on the front line with former colleagues. Helplessly watching COVID-19 devastate nursing home employees, residents and families, inspired Dianna to create a charity bike-a-thon that could raise spirts, funds and awareness of Rhode Island’s hometown heroes who risk their lives everyday to care for our most vulnerable residents.
The Tour de Care for TLC4LTC will begin Saturday, September 12, 2020 (rain date 9/13) 6:30 am Dianna will depart Westerly Health Center, Westerly 2:00 pm (approx.) Dianna arrives at Roberts Health Center, North Kingstown
