Where will you be August 28-30? How about in Columbus, Ohio at the Pelotonia Bike Tour for Cancer Research helping in the fight against cancer?
The Lance Armstrong Foundation has unique partnership with The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. ?The James? is a member of the LIVESTRONG Survivorship Center of Excellence Network and we are proud to be a part of their groundbreaking work in the cancer research field. When we were approached by the folks from Pelotonia and heard that 100% of all donations would go to “The James” and that our Founder and Chairman, Lance Armstrong would be there, we knew we had to get involved.
NetJets’ Columbus based operations have made an astounding $12.5 million gift to establish a unique community based cycling event to benefit cancer research at The Ohio State University. Pelotonia reflects this commitment to the City of Columbus, the State of Ohio and the fight against cancer.
The goal of Pelotonia is to fund cancer research while creating an inspiring and emotional experience. Over the long term, Pelotonia will raise roughly $40mm over the first five years. Starting in Columbus, and extending across the state, over two thousand cyclists, as well as volunteers and other participants will enjoy a unique three-day experience while raising millions of dollars for cancer research for The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Come see Lance and raise funds for an amazing hospital and research facility. Take advantage of the early registration special lasting until May 30th. See you August 28th-30th in Ohio.
