Join our Race Against Hate & Injustice!

This year's Tour de Tolerance will be a Virtual 10-day Challenge with cycling, running, walking, and participatory events - something for everyone! Participate from anywhere- your neighborhood, trails, parks, treadmills- it all counts! Free T-shirt and other swag mailed to all participants!

Daily Challenges

We may be separated by distance, but we are still part of a community! Join us for these fun daily challenges by sharing pictures and comments to connect and share with each other, while celebrating our communities - all across the country!

Day 1 – August 1: Day to Celebrate our Communities                        

Tour de Tolerance now has participants from all over the country! And we would love to see your city or community represented! Is there a favorite landmark, park, memorial, etc. that is important to your community? Please share a photo of what you feel makes your community unique.

Day 2 – August 2: Day for Self-Health

During this challenging time, we have all had to find new tools and methods to maintain self-health and balance. What tool have you found most helpful to maintaining health and balance in this challenging time? Music, cooking, exercise, meditation, art…? Share a photo of your self-health tool.

Day 3 – August 3: Day of Reflection

Today we remember the 23 people murdered in El Paso on August 3, 2019, during a mass shooting at an area Wal Mart. The motivation behind these murders was hate and racism. And one year later, we remember the tragic loss, and we reflect on the lasting impact on our community. Please take a moment to reflect on how you feel our community has changed in the last year. Share an image or comment on your time of reflection, whether you plan to take part in a commemoration event, visit the memorial to the victims, make a donation in memoriam, take time on your own or with loved ones.

Here is a list of community events and resources presented by the El Paso United Family Resiliency Center, the County of El Paso and the City of El Paso:

Day 4 – August 4: Day of Community History 

What public art or history piece represents an important moment in your community’s history. Share a picture of a mural, sculpture or other public art piece that represents this moment for your community.

Day 5 – August 5: Day of Random Acts of Kindness

Particularly during times of crisis and conflict, we can all use more kindness and compassion. Share an image or comment of a random act of kindness that you are able to do for someone else or that someone has done for you.

Day 6 – August 6: Day of Social Good                                   

In what ways can we as individuals care for our community as a whole?  Share an image of how you are looking out for and supporting others at this time – wearing a mask, supporting frontline workers, etc. We are all in this together and can all do our part to support others.                         

Day 7 – August 7: Day of Our Shared History                                    

What moments in our shared history must we never forget? EPHM’s mission is to remember history in order to not repeat it. Share an image of a time in U.S. or World History that you feel we as a society should never forget.

Day 8 – August 8: Day of Enriching our Minds & Understanding 

Reading and listening to the stories and perspectives of others is a great way to broaden your understanding of a subject or issue. Share an image of a book title or article that has helped broaden your understanding, presented a new voice or experience to you.

Day 9 – August 9: Day to Make Your Voice Heard

We all have a voice and there are many ways to make sure we are heard and counted. We want to hear from you how you are making yourself heard! Here are links to complete the Census and Voter Registration. Share an image or comment when you have completed these, or if you have already done so, share your thoughts on other ways we can all make our voices heard.

Day 10 – August 10: Day of Action
