B.C.’s biggest cycling fundraiser is back in the saddle again: The Tour de Cure is this weekend!
The event will be virtual, with participants cycling across B.C.
On Saturday Aug. 28, thousands of participants all across the province will embark on the Tour de Cure presented by Wheaton Precious Metals, B.C.’s largest cycling fundraiser, now with a new name.
This year’s event is virtual with participants riding whichever route they choose in local communities all across the province, including across the Okanagan Valley.
The Tour de Cure helps power cancer research across the province, benefitting the BC Cancer Foundation, which is the fundraising partner of BC Cancer.
Funds raised by participants directly impact individuals and families facing cancer in our communities. Every dollar raised stays in B.C. to break down cancer.
Motorists are urged to be on the lookout for cyclists, and to slow down to respect their safety, on Aug. 28.
And, if you spot any riders in your community, be sure to cheer them on as they ride to power cancer research and save more lives!
