The Ride to Conquer Cancer

Ride to Conquer Cancer
1 2

September 2014 marked the Capital Region’s inaugural Ride to Conquer Cancer. The starting lineup included more than 1,000 participants eager to take on the scenic 150-mile course. Each rider raised a minimum of $2,500.  Together, they raised $2.6 million for the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial Hospital, and Suburban Hospitals, where the funds are already being used to support life-saving cancer research and accelerate transformational cancer discoveries.

For many of the participants, the reason for riding was deeply personal. They rode for loved ones who were battling cancer or in honor of friends and family who had lost their battle with the disease. Yellow flags proudly flew from bicycles of riders who were also cancer survivors—some who took on the two-day challenge in the midst of cancer treatment.

Planning has already begun for next year’s event, scheduled for Sept.19 and 20, 2015.
