Tuscany France
 "The best walking vacation of my life..." - Wendy Bumgardner Walking Guide at About.com
Unique and personal walking and cycling vacations that not only provide a personal experience in a group setting, but also make a difference.  The next time you go on a walking or cycling vacation, think about joining us.
For about half of what those big name walking and cycling companies charge we can show you a vacation you never thought possible.  Not only will you be walking or cycling through some of the most amazing places, but you will also be able to make a difference for your favorite charity.
Not comfortable raising donations for a charity, that's OK.  You don't have to...  When registering you choose to either register using the more typical registration process (but still paying less than what those other companies charge) or you can take advantage of a lower registration fee by committing to raise money for your favorite charity.  Either way you're still making a difference.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
This year's France Walk or Ride was a great success people came from all across the US and converged on a little town called La Flocelliere, France.  From this one central location we made our way around the western Loire Valley and along the way, we had a little fun, ate some great food, made life-long friends, and even cried a little as we remembered those that can no longer walk or ride with us.  We also raised more than $50,000.00 for many organizations!

Mission: The Mission of ...For A Cause, Inc., is to energize and inspire people to make a difference in the lives of those affected by HIV/AIDS, Breast Cancer, and other aflications so that no one face these battles alone.
In the summer of 2000 a group of friends were cycling through Alaska, at the end of a long wet, cold, and snowy day they asked the question, "Why aren't we in Tuscany?"
A year latter, that same group of friends met in Tuscany, Italy for the first Italy AIDS Bike Ride and something magical happened, they sent 100% of their donations to their chosen beneficiary, Project Inform. 

Our main beneficiaries are the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and Breast Cancer Network of Strength Both of these organizations are leaders in their fields and we are honored to be able to support their work.  Also, participants can designate an alternate beneficiary for the donations they raise, making each event personal to them.

"I have participated in many long-distance cycling fund-raisers and now these are the only ones I participate in.  There is no other fund-raiser that lets you pay 100% of your expenses so your donations go to the cause and not the event."

"I found these walks almost by accident now I have participated in 3 and looking toward my 4th walk in France in 2011."

"The 2010 Spain Ride was my first experience with any long-distance cycling fund-raising trip.  I had such an amazing experience that I have signed up for the France 2011 trip and am bringing my partner with me."
