About Obliteride

Fred Hutch Obliteride is a premier community fundraising event that happens every year in Seattle. For 2020, we’re replacing our in-person weekend
event with a reimagined season of sweat, fun, and community for everyone — all from a safe physical distance! 

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. Because the COVID-19 pandemic poses an urgent threat, particularly for people affected by cancer, 50% of the funds Obliteride raises in 2020 will support Fred Hutch’s work to halt COVID-19, and 50% will continue to fuel our core goal: curing cancer faster.
