To show our appreciation to riders who exceed the minimum fundraising amount required to participate in any of our Tour de Cure events we offer some exciting thank you gifts and incentives!
You can earn great gifts for raising $250 or more. Items include awesome Tour de Cure cycling gear, high-tech gadgets, bags, accessories and the latest electronics for those who reach some of the higher levels of thank you gifts we offer. Visit our 2014 Thank you Gift Site to see the gifts available at the various levels. Have your eye on something special? Set your goal even higher and go for it! Our Tour staff is here to help you reach your goals!
Our custom designed Tour de Cure Commemorative cycling jerseys are very popular with our riders. You can earn one by raising at least $500, or get the full kit for raising $1,000 or more. At the $2600 level you can select the special Champions on a Mission jersey which represents the 26 million Americans with diabetes.
These jerseys are a great source of pride among our riders and when you earn one you'll be recognized as someone leading the pack in fundraising.
In addition to our great thank you gifts, you can earn special fundraising incentives as a Team Captain and/or as a rider.
Our fantastic In-Training T-shirt is offered to riders as a fundraising incentive and is only available to riders who register early. This T-shirt is a great way to show others that you're "In Training" for the Tour de Cure and fundraising for a very worthwhile cause. Talk to your local Tour de Cure staff about the details.
Every year we offer a special team captain incentive for any team captain who recruits at least five team members and whose team raises at least $1500 six weeks out from the date of their event. Teams can also earn a Top Team Tent* by raising a certain amount by the day of the event. Additional incentives such as a team masseuse, special goodies and additional recognition are also given to teams who reach even higher levels of overall fundraising. Please contact your local Tour staff for additional details on what team benefits are offered in your area. (*Team Tent levels vary by location).
