Why We Ride for Good
This year’s proceeds will help to support a primary objective of The Hope Center: providing a secure and controlled space where youth can play and engage with their peers in a safe and positive environment. Funds will go towards a new playground with fencing and updated playground equipment, resurfacing the deteriorating basketball courts, and installing new basketball goals.
TOUR de HOPE is proud to have raised over $225,000 in support of The Hope Center and the many wonderful initiatives they have undertaken through the years to provide resources and improve the way of life for so many people!
The Start of TOUR de HOPE
Mike Darby, the founder of TOUR de HOPE, was a unifying force for a greater good. He started TOUR de HOPE, out of a vision to create a fun event that benefited the community. Mike always made things fun, no matter who was involved! His selfless approach, along with his ability to unite those around him to better serve those in need, inspire us all to “Live Like Mike”!
