More than 600 youth at the Oasis program who have completed the Bike Workshop and they’ll tell you: it’s more than just a bike.
After completing the program, youth keep the bike they’ve built, along with a safety helmet, tool kit and a newfound opportunity for healthy living and the ability to explore beyond their neighborhood. Youth also take a pledge to pass on their new skills to help others in their community.

The event raises funds to support Prohealth’s health and wellness outreach programs. These programs impact the lives of more than 40,000 residents in our community each year that could be at risk for or are already living with a chronic health conditions and unhealthy lifestyles. Chronic conditions - such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes - are the leading causes of death in the United States. Chronic conditions impact one out of every ten Americans and account for 81 percent of hospital admissions, 91 percent of prescriptions, and 76 percent of physician office visits. Through health education, screenings, and lifestyle healthcare services Prohealth is working to change this outlook by providing access to those who cannot pay for such services.
Tour de Wellness organizers ensure each route is designed for every level of participants from the beginner to advanced cyclist. The routes are adequately staffed with bike techs, police, medics and volunteers to ensure the safety of every participant.

We encourage participants to recruit a few or a few dozen of their closest family, friends, or colleagues to join Prohealth and celebrate wellness along with raising funds for outreach programs that benefit the communities in Tennessee.
