The Ride to Conquer Cancer©

An epic event, an unparalleled opportunity to cure cancer

Join Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center (ACC) on October 11 to 12, 2014 in the Ride to Conquer Cancer© (RTCC)—an unforgettable and epic bike ride through Pennsylvania's picturesque scenery -towards one life-changing destination: to cure cancer.

At two-days and 150+ miles the RTCC will be a physical challenge—and an emotional and inspirational weekend—that will give you a chance to join forces with our physicians, patients, and families to leave everything on the bike course and raise serious funds and awareness in the ACC's fight to cure cancer.

The funds raised through the ride will be put to use immediately, powering our vision to eradicate cancer as a cause of human disease and suffering through precision medicine, novel research, next-generation therapies, and compassionate care.

Join riders like Susan Ranck, who shared her personal motivation for participating, saying:

“I am beyond grateful that funding from research enabled scientists to discover a drug that enables me to at least control my cancer... I am excited to ride and it's my hope that with more time and money, the researchers at the Abramson Cancer Center will find a cure for my disease and all forms of cancer.”

Your participation is essential!
