More than 1,700 bicycle riders participated in The Ride to Conquer Cancer June 20-21 from Vancouver, B.C., to Seattle. Funds raised from the 37 U.S. riders will go to the Canary Foundation to support early cancer detection research at the Hutchinson Center.
Ride to Conquer Cancer events are held across Canada to benefit various cancer institutions. This 167-mile ride was the first international Canada-U.S. ride. It began in Vancouver, crossed the border, with riders camping overnight in Mount Vernon, and ended at the University of Washington.
The Center’s Paul Litwin and Tim Monahan, of Collaborative Data Services, and Damon May, of Computational Proteomics, were among the riders. The video below features Paul Litwin.
