VeloSano is more than a fundraising event. It's more than simply a bike ride. VeloSano is a movement with the goal of bringing an entire community together to help one another. The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center is honored to participate for its third year in a row. Together, our team of Case CCC employees and friends will join the movement to raise money for the cause. The Case CCC is made of passionate individuals who are committed to cancer research, prevention, treatment, and cures! 100% of the money we raise will support lifesaving cancer research in Northeast Ohio's top-tier hospitals and research institutions.
Our continuing goal is to bring sustainable funding to cancer research by enlisting the passion and energy of thousands of people who wish to give back…including YOU! Case CCC's 2017 team was 110 riders and virtual riders strong--the second largest team in VeloSano this year! We raised nearly $100,000 in 2017, and every dollar goes toward cancer research. Case CCC's team participation has collectively brought more than $500,000 back to the Case CCC for funding pilot research projects.
In 2017, as in previous years, our wonderful riders and virtual riders joined us from all Case Comprehensive Cancer Center partners -- University Hospitals, Seidman Cancer Center, Case Western Reserve University, and the Cleveland Clinic and represent a wide spectrum of professions -- physicians, researchers, physician-researchers, hospital administrators, graduate students, and family and friends who are passionate for the cause. Our riders were also joined by dozens of volunteers both on-campus and down at the VeloSano starting line, and all together, the Case CCC 2017 efforts collectively supported cancer research, funding, and promoted awareness and unity in our institutions.
Our vision and hope for the future is strong VeloSano support and representation from all of our Case Comprehensive Cancer Center partner organizations. Join our team TODAY and help us make VeloSano 5 our biggest year yet!
We can't wait to Bike to Cure in 2018 and have many exciting events and initiatives planned for our Case CCC riders. If you are interested in joining our team, please contact Team Captains: Caroline El Sanadi (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mary Wright (email@example.com) for more details.
