Polsinelli is a proud sponsor of the Tour de BBQ. The Tour de BBQ is KC’s tastiest event on two wheels. It is a “tour” – not a race – where riders choose between routes of 15, 35, and 62 miles. What makes the event unique is that the rest stops for each route are some of Kansas City’s most famous barbeque restaurants where riders are provided a sample of that restaurant’s offering. The ride begins and ends at Kansas City’s Power & Light District and upon return, riders are greeted with Boulevard Beer, more barbeque and a free concert.
Funds raised by the Tour de BBQ support the Midwest Cancer Alliance’s Transitions Clinic – a program for young adult survivors of pediatric cancer. The Transitions Clinic is a partnership between the University of Kansas Cancer Center and Children’s Mercy Hospital. The Tour de BBQ will provide funds for a nurse navigator to assist adolescents as they transition from pediatric to adult oncology treatment.
Since its inception in 2009, the Tour de BBQ has donated nearly $200,000 to fight cancer in Kansas City. The next Tour is October 5, 2013. For more information,click here
