"As leaders we are constantly looking for ways to better engage our teams in the important work we do at our company. The Tour de Cure is an incredible team building activity. It connects leaders with employees and fosters unforeseen networks across the volunteers, participants, and family members, too! Companies spend countless hours and thousands of dollars on staff retreats and team building activities when in fact starting a Tour de Cure team can achieve these same results and at the same time fulfill a civic responsibility.
