Join Fred Hutch and ride against cancer
It’s easy getting distracted from working out, which is why a lot of athletes pick an event that’s months down the road to keep them focused.
If you’re a cyclist, we have something entirely new to keep you motivated all the way through summer: the first-ever Obliteride, a community-wide bicycle event with a powerful purpose.
Obliteride is a fundraising bike ride to benefit lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch. To be held on Aug. 9-11, it will feature an entire weekend of cycling, celebrations and concerts. Don’t ride much, you say? There’s an easy 25-mile ride, followed by 50-, 100- and 180-mile rides for the more experienced set.
In case you didn’t know this, we are quite fortunate to have one of the top cancer research centers in the world right here in our Northwest community. By participating in Obliteride, you can help make a real difference here and with far-reaching impacts around the world.
Thanks to Obliteride sponsors, 100 percent of every dollar raised will directly benefit lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch.
There’s an opportunity for everyone to get involved. Volunteering or fundraising provide great alternatives to riding while clearly contributing to and participating in this new community effort. Sign up to ride, volunteer, or fundraise at obliteride.org. Route maps are now available at obliteride.org/ride and short highlight videos of each route are at obliteride.org.
