At the beginning of the pandemic, many nonprofits faced fundraising challenges with events having to come to standstills. That is when Rachel Cox, Executive Director of Dress for Success NWA, reached out to some old cycling buddies and the wheels began turning on what WE now know as... Tour de Tacos! The next year we added in Tour de BBQ.
These rides have always been collaborative with all the NWA bike shops, but this year we are able to really expand that even further, and now these events are drawing 1000s of cyclists from over 14 states and 3 countries. Our first 5 rides in 2020-2023 raised almost $200,000 for local charities.
The beneficiary is now Dress for Success NWA.
WE enjoy different mileages, great food, and amazing community all on the beautiful Razorback Greenway Trails! WE cannot wait to see how these rides will continue to make an impact going forward! WE - you, me, the community together WE can do great things!
Dress for Success Northwest Arkansas empowers women toward economic independence through career resources.
