The bike-a-thon raises funds for local cancer treatment. Riders in the one-day event, held in August, ask family, friends, co-workers, etc. to support their efforts by making a donation to LIFEcycle. These funds are used to support oncology services for children and adults, with a focus on patients assistance funds and clinical trials. Your participation as a rider or volunteer, or your contribution in support of one, helps ensure that local patients can receive the treatment they need, and it helps ensure that cancer treatment continues to improve, nationally and globally.
