We don’t want to fight cancer, we want to end it.
On Monday, July 30th, six riders set out to 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 our riders’ will not be deterred from their goal to eradicate cancer. Each day they will take on the challenging altitude of the Rocky Mountains, and the rugged terrain of Wyoming and Idaho. Along the way, they will navigate through the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone National Park, Craters of the Moon National Park. A ride to remember, with a noble goal – help raise $100,000 to fund cancer cell gene therapy.
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.”
