To participate in the in-person event, you will need to raise a minimum of $2,500.

The Tour De Cure is an all-inclusive event and allows the opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to participate. The minimum age requirement is 16 years old and every participant will be required to sign an online waiver during registration.

All you need is a bike, helmet and the resolve to power research and help find more cures.
