Tour de Rock is an annual, two-week 1,200 kilometre bike ride. The team is made up of first responders, who are raising money for children and the families affected by pediatric cancer.
To date, Tour de Rock has raised more than $26 million for pediatric cancer. The goal this year is to raise $600,000.
The riders each have pages where people can make donations. You can find the rider profiles here.
