What a year, Obliteriders! We couldn’t gather in person — but we stayed more connected and committed than ever. In states and countries around the world, YOU picked your activity, had fun, honored loved ones, and raised critical funding for cancer and COVID-19 research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
THANK YOU. Because of you, our Obliteride community is stronger than ever.

Obliteride is Fred Hutch’s annual summer fundraiser for lifesaving research and cures. For 2020, we replaced our in-person weekend event with a chance to pick any activity and participate right from home — and more people joined us than ever before. We had more than 3,000 participants from all 50 US states, more than 17 countries, and all 7 continents. They biked, hiked, kayaked, and more; had a blast at our virtual Glow Orange Week events and Saturday Celebration; and supported breakthrough research on both cancer and COVID-19. Together, we raised more than $3 million, bringing Obliteride’s eight-year total to over $32 million. And, thanks to our amazing sponsors, 100% of every participant-raised dollar is going directly to breakthrough research at Fred Hutch.
Obliteriders share how, and why, they geared up and made a difference this year.
Check out our highlights — and get inspired for next year!
I know so many people that have been affected by both cancer and COVID-19 that I want to see as much progress as possible be made toward eradicating both diseases.
Big smiles, big hearts. Obliteriders all over the world made our reimagined season shine. Check out a few photos from this year!
100% of participant-raised dollars fuel lifesaving research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, thanks to our generous sponsors.
