We don’t want to fight cancer, we want to end it.
Beginning Monday, July 30th, six riders will traverse 1,200 miles in 12 days from Boulder, CO to Boise, ID to help fund cutting edge cancer cell and gene therapy research. Getting up every morning to ride 100 miles gets pretty hard after the second day, but we’re at it again this year! We’ll be taking on the challenging altitude of the Rocky Mountains, and the rugged terrain of Wyoming and Idaho. Along the way, we’ll journey through the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone National Park, Craters of the Moon National Park.

Our 2018 goal is to raise $100,000
Gene therapy is the forefront of cutting edge technology to cure cancer. This year, we’ve chosen AGCT, the Alliance for Gene Cancer Therapy to be our fundraising beneficiary. Their mission is to discover new ways to treat and defeat cancer. We are beyond excited to fuel their work.
In the words of AGCT Co-Founder, Edward Netter,
“We are confident that cancer gene therapies are moving towards a tipping point and that someday, sooner rather than later, cancer will be treated with far greater odds of success and less toxicity to the patient.”
