Charity Donations

Over the years, the generosity of our riders and sponsors have allowed the Tour de Corn to support a number of organizations and projects in Southeast Missouri and beyond.  A few of these groups include:

2018 Charity Recipient -- East Prairie R2 Elementary School Playground Project

2018 Charity Recipient - East Prairie Volunteer Fire Department

2018 Charity Recipient - East Prairie Senior Citizen Nutrition Center

Love those tasty baked goods out on the Tour?  Many of them are homemade by the loving hands of our friends at the East Prairie Nutrition Center.  Each year, this organization supports our local community (especially our senior citizens) by providing nutritious, dietician-approved meals, a community of fellowship and meal delivery to our home-bound neighbors.

2018 Charity Recipient - myTEAM TRIUMPH of Cape Girardeau

myTEAM TRIUMPH is an athletic ride-along program created for children, teens, adults and veterans with disabilities who would normally not be able to experience endurance events such as triathlons or road races.  They are a favorite of Tour de Corn -- they inspire us each and every year with their positive attitude and unwavering drive to meet their cycling goals!

2018 Charity Recipient - East Prairie R-2 "Tour de Corn Founders Scholarship"

Tour de Corn was born partially out of our founders' love of their community and their visions to grow something special and lasting for the future.  Likewise, we believe that tomorrow's "founders" are right on the cusp of making a difference in the world.  In 2018, we established the Founders Scholarship for local community-minded seniors who will be enrolled in an accredited, higher education university or technical program in the coming year.  We can't wait to see what these young people will do in their own communities in the future!

2018 Charity Recipient - Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis

Today the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis has a membership list of over 3,000 households including 1,800 individuals with Down syndrome. The group focuses on three core service areas: Awareness & Advocacy, Education and Family Support.  DSAGSL benefits the lives of people with Down syndrome and their families through a lifetime of support, education and advocacy.

The rest stop and road marking were clear. Every person who was helping at the stops registration tables, etc. were some of the best mannered people. So to sum this AWESOME JOB.
