About Obliteride

Fred Hutch Obliteride is a premier community fundraiser that fuels research at Fred Hutch. Held in August, participants ride one of our 25-, 50-, or 100-mile bike routes or join our 5k Run/Walk. For 2020, we replaced our in-person weekend event with a reimagined virtual season. Thousands of people worldwide picked activities they loved, had fun at our online events, and fueled research on cancer and COVID-19.

Why we Obliteride

To save lives, honor loved ones, and fuel cures. Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of participant-raised dollars support lifesaving research at Fred Hutch. This year, 50% of the funds Obliteride raises will support Fred Hutch’s work to halt COVID-19, and 50% will go to our core goal: curing cancer faster.

See us in action!

We’re unstoppable! Obliteride went virtual for 2020, but we still brought all the heart and community that make us a powerful force for good. See what we are all about with some highlights from previous years.
