  • Great Cycle Challenge for the Children's Cancer Research Fund
    31 Aug 2021

    Dear Team,

    We all had high expectations for 2021. We were going to burst out of our quarantine, go hug our family and friends, and be together, but once again Covid changed our plans. One obstacle has remained consistent throughout 2020 and 2021. Cancer is still wreaking havoc. Children are still battling cancer and they need our support! This is why we ride.

    Beginning September 1st, there will be cyclists riding throughout the USA to fight Children’s Cancer. Each of those riders will bring together their teams of support to raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF). Money raised by Great Cycle Challenge riders has been granted to hospitals and research centers throughout USA, including University of Chicago and Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. In 6 years, our community of riders from all 50 states has ridden a total of 25,602,464 miles, and together we’ve raised $39,166,855 in support of research to develop better treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

    Together, with your donations, our team has raised $1,500 in 2015, $1,881.30 in 2016, $4,587.12 in 2017, $4,837.69 in 2018, $7,428.39 in 2020, and $5,216.47 in 2021. Our team has raised a total of $25,510.96 for CCRF to fight Children’s Cancer! I am surrounded by friends and family with the most generous hearts and each of You have my sincerest appreciation!!

    With only 4% of federal funding available for childhood cancer research, fundraising is crucial to finding safer, more effective therapies for kids battling cancer.

    We all have one goal, “A World Without Cancer”.

    Our Challenge...

    To raise $5,000 for the 7th annual Great Cycle Challenge to support Children’s Cancer Research Fund and I pledge to you, to ride 150 miles throughout the month of September.

    I would be honored and most appreciative if you would join our team either with your donation or by joining the Spinning Spokes!

    Thank you very much!

    Donate with Confidence.

    Since 1981, CCRF has contributed over $200 million to research, support programs for children and families, and education and awareness outreach.
