                                We will be Presenting Sponsor of El Tour de Tucson! Thanks to all of you.

                                       We have a slight shortage to reach our goal of $20,000.
We are also looking for additional funding for volunteer T-shirts, customized water-bottles and other memorabilia to sell at the event.
                                        Please consider donating, every dollar helps!

Being the Presenting Sponsor will: 

              *increase Rotarian riders which will increase monies raised for Polio eradication,
              *increase Rotary awareness through branding which will likely increase membership,
               *it will help ensure El Tour de Tucson will continue.

All donations are IRS qualified charitable contributions.  

Currently, we have a $5,000 Rotary Club donor...get your riding team together and pool your monies. 
Don't have a team? You have 4  months to organize one!

El Tour de Tucson is an annual bicycling event for all ages and abilities held in November in Tucson, AZ for the past 36 years.  It costs $1.3-1.5M for Perimeter Bicycling Association of America  [PBAA], a non-profit organization, to put on El Tour de Tucson each year. And, every year the expenses to put on the Ride have increased.  PBAA raises the funds to put on the Ride mostly through sponsorships and rider registrations. Very little money is received from the City or County--in spite of the estimated $16M of an economic impact on the local community. The impact for Rotary has been over $53 M in funds raised for Rotary's Global Polio Eradication Initiative over the past 9 years. If the Ride doesn't go on, Rotary will lose the largest fundraising event it has ever seen.  Rotary District 5500, Southern Arizona, is committed to Keeping the Ride Alive.  To ensure the Ride will go on, District 5500 has decided to raise funds to be Title Sponsor of El Tour de Tucson.
