Welcome to Obliteride! So glad you’re joining us on this journey to an event unlike anything the Northwest has seen. Together we’ll get to know more about the lifesaving research happening at Fred Hutch and what we can all do to accelerate the pursuit of a cure for cancer. It’s a big mission and we’re hugely motivated.

If you’re involved in Obliteride, there’s a good chance cancer has had a profound effect on you or someone you love.

To rally even more people to join the Obliteride movement, we want to share stories from across the Obliteride community. What is your story? Why do you ride? Have you been personally touched by cancer? We’d love to hear why. You may see it on this blog, or even be asked to share it on the air or at the ride next August!

We will send a $5 Starbucks Card to the first 20 people who submit their stories. It’s our way of saying thank you for joining Obliteride and sharing your story.

Please send the following information to mystory@obliteride.org:

  • First and last name
  • Full mailing address (so we can mail your Starbucks Card)
  • Why you are doing Obliteride.
  • Are you riding, volunteering or fundraising in honor of someone touched by cancer?

We know your stories are personal and we will treat them with the utmost respect. All stories will be reviewed before they are shared and we will contact you before we use your story.

Thank you! We will be in touch.
