Beads of Courage, a Tucson-based nonprofit organization, is hosting its 6th Annual Courage Rally on Tuesday, November 12 from 5-8 pm. The public is invited to attend the free, family-friendly event at Beads of Courage Headquarters in the Metal Arts Village, 3230 N. Dodge Blvd.
The rally serves to recruit the Tucson community to “Carry a Bead” in support of children coping with cancer and other serious illnesses who participate in the Beads of Courage program. The first 100 guests at the Courage Rally will receive a free Carry a Bead kit.
The event features special guest appearances including members of the University of Arizona Cheerleading team, a free photo booth, and an opportunity to purchase Millions for Tucson raffle tickets for a chance to win a new Jeep Grand Cherokee and other valuable prizes.
This year’s Courage Rally coincides with Open Studios Under the Full Moon at the Metal Arts Village, featuring live music by Los Streetlight Curb Players; the Los Locos Tacos and You Sly Dog food trucks; and an opportunity to learn more about Beads of Courage and the Carry a Bead program.
Athletes from the Beads of Courage Cycling Team will carry beads in the 37th Annual El Tour de Tucson on November 23, as they ride 25, 50, or 100 miles to raise funds for the nonprofit organization. Riders leading the way for Team Beads of Courage include professional cyclist and 2019 U.S. Pro Criterium Champion Travis McCabe; 2014 U.S. National Road Race Champion Eric Marcotte; and Stone House Racing, an elite amateur cycling team featuring past El Tour winner Rob Alvarez.
