The ConnectiCare Gran Fondo honors the memory of Gordon Keller, a local triathlete who lost his life in a tragic accident during a training ride. For riders that

choose to fundraise, all donations will support the family he left behind- his beloved wife, Alyson, and their two young children, Riley and Lily. Gordon was a ConnectiCare employee at the time of his passing. This event is hosted in partnership with the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program (CCAP).
