We wanted to share this idea with all of you who may be riding – or considering riding – in the 2011 El Tour de Tucson. You can choose to sign up through the Humane Society of Southern Arizona (HSSA) and pledge your proceeds to benefit local animals in need!
The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is participating as a beneficiary in the University Medical Center El Tour de Tucson Presented by Diamond Ventures. You can raise funds for our animals through your El Tour de Tucson ride or through the indoor event (which is held on stationary bikes).
El Tour de Tucson (Outdoor Ride): Saturday, November 19, 2011
El Tour is an amazing bike ride attracting over 9,000 cyclists of all ages and abilities from throughout the United States, including novice, intermediate, advanced, and professional riders. What all riders of El Tour share is a desire to get on their bikes, meet great people and have a fun doing it!
Participants may choose to cycle 109, 79, 66, or 40 miles, plus a 4-mile & 1/4- mile Kids & Family Fun Ride, open to kids, parents and friends.
El Tour cyclists (signing up through HSSA) receive an official event t-shirt, cycling socks from HSSA, goody bag, police, route and SAG support, aid station refreshments, published results and more! And all finishers are awarded a special engraved medallion at the finish line for their accomplishment.
How it would benefit HSSA? All contributions you raise from family, friends, and business associates for your ride will benefit the animals in our care.
