A news interview being conducted as Gas Works Park

Fred Hutch Obliteride is the largest and best-organized fundraising bike ride and 5K walk/run in the Pacific Northwest. We’re a movement to obliterate cancer by fueling lifesaving research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. For 2020, we reimagined our event so that our participants could pick any activity and have fun from a safe distance. The final day of our season was Saturday, August 8.
