Sure, it looks like a bike ride, but Obliteride is really a new, community-wide effort to accelerate lifesaving, breakthrough research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
We are creating a movement of people committed to obliterating cancer and saving lives faster. It culminates in a memorable, inspiring bike ride August 9-11, 2013 that is quintessentially Northwest. And thanks to our sponsors, 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to research so the more money we raise as a community, the closer we are to a cure. It’s going to take all of us. Ride. Donate. Volunteer. Tell others. Ending cancer starts here.
