Welcome to Home of The Tour de USA®

The Tour de USA®  is a program of the Cancer Journeys Foundation.  Our goal is to create unique and fun adventures that create lasting memories, new friends, raise awareness of the importance of early detection in defeating cancer and, along the way, raise funds for the Cancer Journeys Foundation’s programs that provide guidance and support to the 15+ million cancer survivors living the United States.

Tour de USA® Events

We love driving cars. [We also love motorcycles!] We love adventures. We love meeting new people, making new friends, and creating lifelong memories. We also love good food. And, most especially, we love doing all of these while we support the millions of Americans going through their personal cancer journeys, most often with limited support.

Our Programs

Wine Rallies

We host car rallies along California’s beautiful Central Coast. Our first outing was to Paso Robles, and we’re now looking at trips to Santa Ynez, Solvang, and Los Olivos.

Trans-America Relay Rally

In 2010 and 2011, we held a motorcycle rally from Los Angeles to Washington, DC and back for prostate cancer awareness. We recreated this event in 2018 using cars and renamed it the Tour de USA®. Click the following link to read about what we accomplished – 2018 Tour de USA for Cancer Prevention.

One-Day Twisty Rallies

These are one-day adventures that you can easily turn into a weekend getaway. For example, the Temecula – Palomar – Julian – Temecula loop. Click the following link for information on The Tour de USA Twisties.

About the Tour de USA® Automobile Adventure Program

I was accidentally diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer in 2003. Because of that early diagnosis and treatment, I am still alive and going strong today. But many cancer survivors aren’t that fortunate. My goal with the Tour de USA® is to spread the “early detection” message and provide critical support to the children, women, and men going through their own cancer journeys.

All of the profits from Tour de USA® events go to the Cancer Journeys Foundation.  Click the following link to visit the Foundation – Cancer Journeys Foundation.
