Tour de Lis is a road cycling event that benefits the Lance Armstrong Foundation; the Cancer Association of Greater N.O. and Planet Cancer . It's not a race - it's a ride with a purpose - to raise funds for and awareness about cancer survival, support, and research-to celebrate survivors and support those still in battle. The inaugural Tour de Lis in April 2007 raised $40,000 and featured five riders who cycled 150 miles around Lake Pontchartrain.
The goal of the Tour de Lis is to provide a ride that is safe, fun, non-competitive and open to all levels of cycling ability, while bringing cancer awareness to the community and raising funds for organizations that are in the forefront of Cancer Survivor Support.
