Part of Tour of the Gila’s success is the tremendous support offered by numerous volunteers. A community truly comes together to help Tour of the Gila happen each year. We are saddened by the loss of one of our wonderful volunteers who passed away the 23rd of February. Rick Moreno will be remembered as he was not just a friend, but a dependable helper for the race, and a member of our Grant County community. Perhaps we can best honor his memory by keeping alive the living legacy he left behind. We believe that when someone acts for something greater than themselves, that person lives on in the hearts of those who continue to do good works. The Tour of the Gila is one such cause that contributes so very much to the competitors, our local community, and the world. Rick Moreno helped carry the race to this moment and we honor his memory.
