Rochester Couple Will Bike from Los Angeles to New York City
Tracy Williams and his Wife, Ebony Williams, will embark on a bike ride from L.A. to New York City this month to raise awareness and garner support for their CTW Foundation Inc. What is the CTW Foundation you might ask? The CTW Foundation Inc. was developed based upon the following, according to Tracy Williams on the Foundation website:
My first wife, Courtney T. Williams, was studying for her LSAT to pursue a career in Business and Corporate Law when she died in 2002. Her dream was to create a law firm to help establish minority-owned companies and give corporate and civil support to them.
In 2018, the CTW Foundation Inc. was formed to help carry out the purpose of her dream. The CTW Foundation Inc., along with partnering businesses, institutions, agencies and government, will establish and maintain programs that will offer exposure and education in fields related to law and urban development as early as the 3rd grade and continue through high school graduation
Along with creating awareness relative to areas of concern within the African-American Community, relative to finance, education, and social challenges, the CTW Foundation will also raise monies to support a Scholarship Fund for aspiring students who wish to pursue careers in, Architecture, Civil Engineering, Urban Renewal, Urban Economics, Corporate Law, Tax Law, Real Estate Law and Real Estate Development in U.S. post-secondary institutions, according to the CTW Foundation.
