2018 Tour de Cure Snow Ball

On Saturday 23rd June 2018, we joined the Tour de Cure family, and celebrated this year's accomplishments, at their highlight event, the Snow Ball. The outstanding generosity of the Tour de Cure Family, which Tour de Rocks plays a part, saw an unbelievable $1.3m raised on the night to fund cancer research projects. That takes them to an epic $40 million raised since 2007, and together, we've funded 322 cancer projects and 24 cancer breakthroughs.
 

We can only continue to help achieve this with the amazing support of all of you - riders, supporters, sponsors and volunteers.
