—More than 1,400 riders are participating in Obliteride
this weekend. They’re spinning their wheels to raise critical funds to help Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
“We’re excited so many people have joined Obliteride this year,” said Amy Lavin, Obliteride’s executive director. “It shows people are embracing the Hutch, recognizing there’s a real urgency now as scientists are on the verge of many cancer cures.”
“Most people do not understand that I am not "cured". They don't realize that I still live with a disease.”
- Kristy Larch, Wedgwood Resident
"Obliteride is a way to contribute to cancer research, to finding treatments and potentially cures, in a fun and social way.”
- Sarah Zurat – Maple Leaf Resident
“I sat by my mom’s side each day of her last month of life, before passing, altogether too young, from cancer.“
- Matthew Caprio – Queen Anne Resident
“Everyone who gets involved in Obliteride is so glad they participated. You get to meet a lot of amazing people and will never forget the great experience.”
- Nancy Evans – Magnolia resident
“I realized this tumor and disease is part of me, likely forever. I chose not to fight my cancer but love it away.”
- Brian Tracy – Greenwood resident

I ride because I am weary of friends and family members getting cancer, and too often dying from it. I ride because I have given too many eulogies for dear friends. I ride because of the pain and suffering cancer causes my patients and their families. I ride to end cancer, to obliterate it.
