Help build awareness and spread the word about Obliteride, a new bike ride to support breakthrough cancer research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

Volunteers will be walking the streets and talking to local business owners, asking them to support Obliteride by hanging a poster, displaying a yard sign and hosting brochures. You know your community best, so grab a friend or family member and help spread the word at your favorite bike shop, cafĂ© or boutique. 

Here are the details:

  • Wear your favorite Obliteride orange outfit!
  • Meet at the Obliteride office, 820 Minor Ave. N, at 10 a.m. for bagels and coffee. 
  • Mingle, eat, divide up teams and target location, and pass out materials.
  • At 11 a.m., hit the streets and go out to your identified location to pass out materials and talk about Obliteride.
  • At 1 p.m., wrap up and head home.

Join the fun and help paint the town orange by contacting Lauren Waldstein at lauren@obliteride.org or 206-667-6923.

Also in the month of April, buildings across Seattle will light up Obliteride orange as a sign of solidarity, a shared commitment to end cancer. You can join this effort, too. Light up your house; your trees; stick cellophane in your window; write with an orange pen; wear orange on Fridays (or every day!), or make your Facebook profile picture the Obliteride orange logo to honor all those affected by cancer.

Register to ride in or volunteer for Obliteride at www.obliteride.org.

Bring on the orange!
