A body at rest will remain at rest until acted upon by an outside force. Uphill Into The Wind strives to be that outside force by putting bodies on bikes (BOB) and setting them in motion.

Uphill Into the Wind is a 501(c)3 non-profit focused on putting "Bodies On Bikes." We loan bikes to individuals who ride to raise money for charities.

Uphill Into The Wind is such an important partner of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and our Team In Training program. Their support has made it possible for so many of our athletes to train while raising thousands of dollars to advance our mission. Our cycle and triathlon participants are simply amazed by what Uphill Into The Wind does in helping them get started. By putting bodies on bikes you are making cures more possible than ever… THANK YOU!

As for the help of Uphill, I could not have done El Tour de Tucson without you. Thank you so much to have bikes available locally here in Tucson. As Komen looks to increase our team members to get more state-wide participants in El Tour de Tucson, we will mentioning Uphill Into The Wind as an option.
