The Gears for the Tiers Charitable Fund was created in 2009 with the goals of supporting bicycle races in their goal to raise much needed dollars for local charities and to provide education on children's bicycle safety. The fund is actively managed by the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and Finger Lakes, Inc., giving it a Federal 501c(3) designation and making all contributions tax deductible!
From 2010 to 2015, The Fund has supported the Corning Circuit Race at The Glen. The event was created to raise money and community awareness for a local charity while also providing a fun and exciting event in which local cyclists and their families could participate. From 2008 to 2015, over $36,000 has been raised for a number of local community organizations including: Meals on Wheels of Chemung County and Corning Meals on Wheels, the Josh Palmer Fund, the Corning Area Youth Center and the Elmira Southside Community Center, the Southeast Steuben County Habitat for Humanity, CareFirst, Holden's Heroes, the Chemung County SPCA, Dave Clark Foundation, Tanners P.A.W.S., and Twin Tiers Honor Flight. Over 150 children have been taught bicycle safety and given free helmets and safety equipment through the work of our programs.
