World Lymphoma Awareness Day Virtual Cycle Event

Friday, September 13 – Sunday, September 22

 

 

We're in this ride together!

Come together with riders from around the world by joining us for our first international virtual bike ride to celebrate World Lymphoma Awareness Day (September 15). Help us raise funds for the free programs delivered by the CLF to the cutaneous lymphoma community.

This ride can happen anywhere, at any time, at your own pace. Individuals and teams can participate at any location and cycle either the suggested 10 - 50 miles OR any distance you choose. Consider taking a ride in your community to a city landmark, on a stationary bike at home, at the gym, or at your place of employment. As long as you are cycling!

The purpose of this ride is to create an annual fundraising event using World Lymphoma Awareness Day as the catalyst. We want to engage you as a participant to be a fundraiser to raise $200 or more for the Foundation. We encourage you to share aspects of your journey using pictures, mementos, accomplishments, and personal stories about how cutaneous lymphoma has impacted you.
