Join Team “Great Futures” in riding the Tucson Medical Center 37th El Tour de Tucson presented by Banner UMC!

Saturday, November 23, 2019

Team “Great Futures ” is comprised of like-minded individuals that believe in supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson (BGCT) through organized community fundraising events, like El Tour de Tucson.  Monies raised are used to subsidize club memberships and to provide proven out-of-school hours programming to Tucson’s youth at BGCT’s six local clubhouses.

As part of Team “Great Futures Start Here”, we ask that each member raises a minimum of $500.00 to sponsor a BGCT youth Club Member for one year.  Even though Club Membership is only $20 per school year and $60 for summer camp, the true cost to the Clubs is more than $700 annually per child.

It’s easy to join the El Tour de Tucson “Great Futures Start Here” Team and ride for the Clubs!
