Tour de Hope 2021 Virtual Bike Ride

Organized by TOUR de HOPE

About this event

Join us for the 10th annual Tour de Hope, as we take to the virtual streets to 'Ride for Good'. In the face of this global Covid-19 pandemic and the severe disruption to our everyday lives, we're reminded of our founder Mike Darby's spirit, which reflected the principle of "turning lemons into lemonade" - so we're moving ahead with the 2021 Tour de Hope! We are again conducting the event as a virtual ride, asking for your participation and your support for The Hope Center of Kansas City, and its vision of "developing healthy communities where the vulnerable can have hope and flourish."

The Hope Center (THC) provides family outreach programs, child and youth development programs, a charter school partnership with the Kaufmann Foundation, a family healthcare center, and fosters several housing initiatives in the Eastern Kansas City urban core.

All of our proceeds from this 2021 virtual ride will support programs at THC that promote new, STEM-focused learning practices, plus expand upon the 'Safe Spaces' initiative from 2019 - providing secure areas where youth can play and engage with their peers in a safe and positive environment. In addition, THC is struggling in the midst of this Covid-19 pandemic with the funding to support additional cleaning needs, meals for children, and community essentials.
