The Pink Ribbon Tour is a road cycling event in Pocatello, Idaho centered on building awareness for breast cancer while raising funds for local cancer patients and providing access to early detection mammograms.
The 4th annual Pink Ribbon Tour will be held on the first Saturday in October to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The date for 2018 is Saturday, October 6.
The Pink Ribbon Tour will have courses available for riding of all abilities, including families. Rides include a 50, 35, 20 and 8.5 mile courses for individuals, teams, and families. The Pink Ribbon Tour is an event for everyone!
Funds raised will go directly back into our community through several programs. First, is the Early Detection Mammogram fund that assists women in Eastern Idaho receive lifesaving mammograms at little to no cost. Second is the Cancer Patient Assistance Fund which helps provide cancer patients with assistance to make ends meet during cancer treatment. Last year $20,000 was donated to local cancer patients through funds raised at our 2017 Pink Ribbon Tour! Combined with monies from 2015 we are proud to have donated $50,000 to help local families.
The Pink Ribbon Tour was created after a close friend was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. A cancer diagnoses truly changes life’s perspective. Out of the helplessness that comes along with being a supporter of a cancer patient the Pink Ribbon Tour took shape to help raise awareness and support those that are on their journey with cancer.
Join us in being a part of making a difference and fighting back against cancer!
