SEATTLE – Jan. 6, 2014 – After a hugely successful and fun inaugural Obliteride 2013, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is gearing up for the second annual community fundraising bike ride to raise money to help end cancer. Rider registration for the Aug. 8-10, 2014 event opens today at Obliteride.org. Register early to hold your spot in Obliteride 2014.
“Community support for Obliteride has been outstanding,” said Amy Lavin, Obliteride’s executive director. “In 2014 we’re looking for that support to result in even more riders and higher fundraising. That means we accelerate cancer research and discovery, and save lives faster. Having fun together is also a part of it!”
Participants can expect an even better Obliteride experience in 2014, including:
Because of the support of Obliteride’s generous underwriters, like University Village, 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to cancer research, making Obliteride a unique and powerful way to support the fight against cancer.
In 2013, Obliteride raised nearly $2 million for lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch, setting a fundraising record for raising more money for a local organization than any other bicycling fundraiser in the Northwest. With the community’s help, Obliteride organizers expect to shatter the fundraising record set in 2013.
Obliteride is a community that cares fiercely about ending cancer. We connect over the impact cancer is having on our lives and our intense commitment to find better treatments and ultimately eliminate it. We believe that together we can make a difference. Together we can end cancer. Join the movement to obliterate cancer. It’s fun, focused and full of energy! 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch. Obliteride 2014 is Aug. 8-10. Learn more at www.obliteride.org.
