Local cyclists are invited to make their miles more meaningful by participating in the Society’s third annual Bicycles Battling Cancer event on Sunday, June 12. The ride takes beginner and veteran cyclists alike through scenic back roads from Worcester to Boston. The event allows participants the opportunity to get fit, have fun, and make a difference, all while reducing their cancer risk.
Riders can participate individually or as a team with a variety of ride options:
- The full Century 100-mile ride option begins at the Bancroft School in Worcester with a $50 registration fee and a $600 fundraising minimum.
- The Metric Century 62-mile ride option begins in Northborough with a $50 registration fee and a $600 fundraising minimum.
- The Bicycles Battling Cancer Lite 30- mile ride begins in Holliston with a $50 registration fee and a $600 fundraising minimum.
Funds raised through Bicycles Battling Cancer support the Society’s critical mission to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. The American Cancer Society helps people stay well, by preventing cancer or detecting it early; get well, by being in their corner through every step of their cancer experience; by finding cures, through groundbreaking research and treatment discoveries; and by fight backing, through influencing public policy.
