The Rachel Minkove Memorial Gold Helmet

Since the turn of the century, the Gold Helmet has been the holy grail of TDC.

Like the Stanley Cup, the winning team holds the Helmet for the entire year. Champions are also have their names permanently inscribed on the Helmet.

The Helmet makes national appearances throughout the year at weddings, bar Mitzvahs and banquets. The original Helmet vanished at one such affair in 2011. If anyone has any information of its whereabouts he should contact local authorities immediately.

In 2012, the Tour lost a beloved family member when Rachel Minkove tragically lost her long battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Rachel's memory lives on prominently with TDC. In addition to fundraising efforts in her honor, we have decided to add her golden name to the official title of this prestigious trophy. Rachel was known for her golden smile—no, she didn't have grills—which is now passed onto the jubilant winners who hold the Rachel Minkove Memorial Gold Helmet.
