Welcome to the Team Beads of Courage "Cycling for Courage" Page!

The cyclists listed here are representing Beads of Courage, a Tucson-based nonprofit organization, when they ride for courage this November in the 36th El Tour de Tucson. The Beads of Courage mission means a lot to these cyclists and they will participate in El Tour inspired by the strength and courage of the 60,000+ children and teens who are members of the Beads of Courage Program.

Beads of Courage improves the quality of life of children coping with cancer and other serious illnesses through innovative arts-in-medicine programs that help tell the story of their treatment journey. Children like Scarlette ...

This courageous four-year-old is receiving Beads of Courage during her treatment for sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. Scarlette had her left arm, shoulder, clavicle, and scapula amputated in 2014. She has been through 21 surgeries and months of chemotherapy. She has spent more than 200 days in the hospital.

Despite all this, Scarlette is a fighter! Her mom tells us, "I'm beyond proud of Scarlette and her journey. She absolutely loves her Beads of Courage and we love to share her excitement and love for life. Now that she's growing up, she can see how much she's gone through with every colorful glass bead she receives."
