El Tour de Tucson is a 501(c)3 non-profit that rides to support charities, community, health and wellness. Since 1983 more than 100 local, national, and international non-profit charities have raised over $101 million for their own organizations and causes.
The local Boy Scouts of America (BSA), Catalina council, is partnering with El Tour this fall as a fundraising event for the local council. This event enables scouts of all levels to actively participate in a large local community outdoor activity in addition to raising money that will support the local scouting council.
Additionally, for those scouts working on merit badges, participation in this event can earn bike riding requirements towards the Cycling merit badge.
