For cross state and multi-day tours this site has a great state by state list: https://www.bikingbis.com/ Also has a lot of other interesting information. Other than that, google or bing are your friends.

Did you check out the regional sub-forums at the top section of the forum portal page? There is also a specific one for rides and events for charities in that section. These are well watched and posted to, maybe these have what you are looking for. Best of luck in finding the events and in making your schedule.

I've always thought that prefacing a US or Canadian (outside of Quebec/Maritimes) place name with a "Tour de" was really dumb. I think this reached its nadir in our nearby race event here in British Columbia, the "Tour de White Rock." I kept telling them that it should have been "le Tour de Roche Blanche," but they wouldn't buy it. Except for Quebec and Mexico, most of North America is English speaking, so what's wrong with "Tour of..." And save the exotic names for Quebec ("Tour de la Nouvelle France" or "Grand Prix Cycliste de Beauce") or Mexico ("Vuelta Ciclista de ...") where they get the language right and it sounds better!

Well it is dumb, but I'm pretty sure most of these are meant to be ironic, not literal. Nobody is going to touring around a "cure"
