What is Obliteride?

Fred Hutch Obliteride is a global community united to take action against cancer by raising funds and awareness for lifesaving research. It’s also an event and party to remember! In 2023, Obliteriders will join up on Saturday, August 12, in Seattle for our annual bike ride and 5K walk/run. 

Obliteride’s goal is to: Unite and inspire a global community to take action against cancer by supporting lifesaving research at Fred Hutch.

10 Years of Community and Action

In 2013, orange banners started popping up around Seattle with a bold invitation: Get on your bike and help obliterate cancer. A dedicated group answered the call — and sparked a global movement that, today, joins people worldwide to help Fred Hutch researchers advance prevention, treatments and cures. Over 10 years, we’ve added an all-ages 5K walk/run. We’ve welcomed tens of thousands of participants and volunteers. And our amazing community has supported more than $36 million in groundbreaking research. But one thing has never changed: We are still all in to save lives and help Fred Hutch cure cancer faster.

Who We Are

Individuals, teams and families from around the globe. Participants of every age and speed. People who have been diagnosed with cancer and all who support them. Whether we clip in, roll out, sharpen our pencils or polish our dance moves, we’re all in to cure cancer faster.
