At any given time, ten thousand Canadian children are on the journey through cancer.
Tour for Kids is fundraising event benefiting Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children living with and beyond cancer.
This annual sell out event, held in July, is a 3-day, all-inclusive, bicycle tour through the Canadian Rockies. In return for the opportunity to ride 100km to 200km per day, participants are required to raise donations on behalf of Kids Cancer Care.
Tour for Kids is an important, sustainable source of funding for Camp Kindle where Alberta children are provided enriching experiences at no cost to their families.
Through your donation, YOU are helping change the lives of children affected by cancer. Every penny of the $1.8 million raised by Tour for Kids-Alberta serves to improve the quality of life for children through camp and associated programs.
Your donation helps Kids Cancer Care sustain year round programs in traditional camp settings as well as hospitals and community facilities. Programs are largely available free-of-charge to cancer patients, their siblings and their families but operate without government funding.
Comprehensive information about each Camp Kindle and Kids Cancer Care is available on their website:
100% OF YOUR DONATION WILL BE PUT TO GOOD WORK.
Every penny of every dollar that you donate will be donated to Kids Cancer Care’s camp programs. Tour for Kids does not redirect any part of your donation to administration, marketing or other purpose whatsoever. This rare, “100% model” is achieved through the contribution of volunteers and corporate partners that offset whatever event expenses are in excess of revenues received through registration fees. Many donors appreciate this financial transparency.
People ride Tour for Kids for many reasons. Some simply love to ride their bike. Many have personal connections with the cause. But all see the value of bringing smiles to thousands of Canadian children innocently caught in the cancer journey.

On behalf of the kids, and camps, thank you for lifting so many spirits.
