About Obliteride

Obliteride is an unforgettable community fundraiser for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. People of all ages, abilities, and speeds join up and take action to fuel lifesaving cancer research. Usually, participants ride our in-person 25-, 50-, or 100-mile bike routes in Seattle, Washington, join our 5K Walk/Run, or Choose their Own activity to complete on their own anytime (and anywhere) during the season. Stay tuned for our 2022 details. 

Why we Obliteride

To celebrate life, honor loved ones, and help cure cancer faster. Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of every dollar you raise goes directly to cancer research.

I Obliteride for ...

Obliteriders photos, social media posts, and stories inspired us all season long. Take a moment to watch a short montage of the personal photos shared on our virtual "I Obliteride for" wall.

We Obliteride to save lives — and we're just getting started.

Obliteride is more than an event: it's a global movement to cure cancer faster. 

Whether we clip in, roll out, sharpen our pencils or strengthen our dance moves, we're a community dedicated to ending cancer and supporting every person facing this disease. We have fueled $36 million (and counting!) in fearless research at Fred Hutch. Together, we’re turning our compassion into action. Now, we need you!

Obliteride's warmth and welcome support is hands-down the best on the entire West Coast.
