We welcome our non-profit partners! El Tour is a charity ride and we have so many looking for riders

It’s a new year and so much to look forward to at the Banner – University Medicine 40th El Tour de Tucson. We’re going to have so much fun with so many people: cyclists, volunteers, elite cyclists, sponsors and entertainers.

And, of course, our non-profit partners. Remember – this is a ride for charity. It has been since day one and has continued through 39 years and will be bigger and better in year 40. We’re shooting for more than 60 nonprofits and with seven months left we already have 38 on board.

We welcome many back and say hello and welcome to the new ones.

They know the importance of the ride and raising money for their respective causes. It takes a village to get this ride going – so many involved – but the nonprofits are our inspiration with all their efforts and great stories.

If you are going to ride, think about riding for any one of the nonprofits listed.

We want to raise more than $5 million this year. That number has long been realistic and now we have a feeling year 40 is going to crush that number.

Welcome to all the nonprofits that have signed up and to all the ones who will be joining us for our ride on Nov. 18, 2023.

Go to our website to register and visit each and everyone of our nonprofits listed.
