Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency (MORA) and North Mississippi Medical Center (NMMC) are teaming up to host the 3rd annual Tour de Life cycling event to bring awareness to organ, eye and tissue donation. In the United States 113,000+ men, women, and children are on a waiting list to receive a life-saving organ transplant. One donor can save up to eight lives and one tissue donor can heal the lives of seventy-five others. Through organ, eye and tissue donation, hundreds of thousands of lives are being improved.
The Tour de Life will be held on Saturday, June 15 at Fairpark in beautiful downtown Tupelo, birthplace of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock n Roll. Registration will begin at 7 a.m. and the ride begins at 8 a.m. The ride will take you by the home of Elvis Presley then on into the beautiful hills of northeast Mississippi.
Early bird registration is $40.00. Registration after May 31 is $50.00.
