For 2012, the Tour de BBQ is reaching out to the entire community in an effort to raise awareness and money for cancer research in the Midwest. To increase the impact we’re having in the fight against cancer, we’re adding a $75 fundraising requirement to this year’s ride.
Our bottom-line is to make a huge difference in the fight against cancer, and with your support, we know we can do this. 100 percent of the $75 dollars that you raise will stay in Kansas City to support The University of Kansas Cancer Center and Children’s Mercy Hospital’s oncology program. We want to help make the fundraising requirement as easy and fun as possible.
Click the 'FUNDRAISE FOR THIS EVENT' button to get started and create your own team or join an existing team and raise lots of money for a cause close to your heart.
Tour de BBQ is a "fun flavored" cycling fundraising event which unites cancer survivors, family, friends and caregivers together to collectively work to make a difference in the fight against cancer throughout the Kansas City region. Through advocacy efforts, awareness campaigns and fundraisers we believe we can make cancer a priority and reduce the burden of cancer. Proceeds benefit KU Cancer Center.
At no other event in the world can you sample up to six of Kansas City’s famous barbeque while helping in the fight against cancer.
The course is an award winning route that takes you literally on a tour of Kansas City’s best barbeque throughout the Kansas City metro area. Rest stops are every 10 miles and are Kansas City’s famous barbeque restaurants.
We have lots of awesome prizes (like an iPad3) for you to use to get your friends and family to donate to your fundraiser.Click here to check it out, choose a prize and email everyone you know about it.
