Be a Defender

Being a fundraising cyclist in the 38th El Tour de Tucson is a fun, impactful, and simple way for you and your company, friends, or family to support the life-changing work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Arizona.

Join us to make a difference in a child's life

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Arizona (SoAzbigs) is a proud beneficary of the Annual El Tour de Tucson to be hosted Saturday November 20, 2021.  Fundraising cyclists participating on behalf of SoAzBigs do so as a fun and active way to support our life-changing one-to-one mentoring programs while earning their entry into the tour and winning prizes.


Don't forget, Big Brothers Big Sisters is a qualified Charitable Organization (QCO Code 20461) for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit.  When you donate you can receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit that reduces the amount you owe the State of Arizona and may increase your state tax refund!  Donate up to $400 if you file single or up to $800 if you file jointly on your Arizona tax return and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit for your tax obligation.  YOU DECIDE how your Arizona tax dollars are spent, keep them right here in Tucson and help ignite the potential in the lives of children in need right now! PLUS the CARES Act was extended into 2021 and allows $300 per tazpayer deductions on your federal tax filings ($600 when filing jointly).

If you choose to join Team Defenders and cycle in the Annual El Tour de Tucson on November 20th, 2021 with US, you commit to raising a minimum of $400 by November 1st, 2021, in order to be eligible to ride in the tour for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Arizona.
