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.
THIS YEAR ROTARY DISTRICT 5500 WILL BE A PRESENTING SPONSOR!
We are currently raising money for additional promotional items such as T-shirts, water-bottles, etc..
Commemorative Jerseys will soon be available to purchase on the RIDE TO END POLIO website link.
