El Tour de Tucson

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in this year’s El Tour fundraising efforts. It may have been rainy and cold the day of El Tour, but that did not diminish the spirit.  The combined efforts of our sponsors and cyclists helped to raise approximately $33,000 on behalf of APDA.  All of you have made such a difference in helping our programs and services continue to thrive.
