Charity riders are required to raise a minimum of $75 in order to participate. And, that donation includes full ride support, an event T-shirt and post-ride lunch. Event guests will also have the opportunity to meet Team Columbia athletes and Bob Roll following the ride! Registration opens at 7:30 am and the rides begin at 9:00 am.

Amgen’s Breakaway from Cancer initiative supports the programs and services offered by four nonprofit organizations – the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, Patient Advocate Foundation, the Prevent Cancer Foundation and The Wellness Community. These organizations offer important resources to cancer patients, from prevention to education and patient care to advocacy and financial support. All funds raised from this ride will benefit them.
