TMC sponsors 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo Race

OldPuebloTucson Medical Center is once again the proud sponsor of the 14th annual 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo race, one of the largest 24-hour mountain bike events in the world. This exciting event, organized by Tucson-based company Epic Rides,  takes place Feb. 17-19 in gorgeous Willow Springs Ranch, north of Tucson.

Epic Rides coordinated a sponsor partnership with Tucson Medical Center, signing Moots as the Official Bike Sponsor of the event. Moots, together with TMC, are giving away over $4000 in Moots titanium bike parts. Titanium is the key word as Tucson Medical Center raises awareness of their new Orthopaedic and Surgical Tower slated to open this Spring.

“The TMC Orthopaedic and Surgical Tower will be the only dedicated orthopaedic facility in Southern Arizona delivering world-class care and convenience to cyclists and the entire community,” says Julia Strange, Vice President Community Benefit.  The community of Southern Arizona can feel confident knowing they have a facility that could make a huge difference in maintaining an active lifestyle, in the event of injury.

The 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo event will host more than 3,500 participants, volunteers and spectators throughout the course of the Presidents Day weekend. All available spots are taken and registration is closed as cycling enthusiast wait in anticipation for the gates to open to the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo race.

Epic Rides donates event proceeds to many organizations. However, the event specifically benefits Bag It!. Bag It is an organization established to help people fight the fear often associated with cancer diagnoses.

Epic Rides is a Tucson-based mountain bike event organizer and hosts this ride as well as the Whiskey Off-Road Endurance Mountain Bike Event & Festival in Prescott each April and the Show Low Bluff Tour of the White Mountains in Show Low each October.
