Over 70,000 people are diagnosed with skin cancer every year, but you can join the fight against skin cancer at the 6th Annual MSU Grand Fondo, Saturday, June 23rd. The MSU Grand Fondo is a fundraising event offering four different cycling routes for riders of all ages and abilities. The MSU Grand Fondo has generated over $900,000 for skin cancer research during the last five years. The MSU College of Human Medicine is the beneficiary of the fundraising and they’ve recently discovered a promising new drug that stops melanoma from spreading by 90%.
Raise funds for a worthy cause, ride with 1,500 cycling friends, and celebrate afterwards at the best street party in Grand Rapids. More information can be found: msugrandfondo.org
“I did this ride (Split the Mitt) last year. It was awesome. This year is going to be awesomer. It’s a great organization, and I’d love to wrangle more people into riding it”, said Tim Pulliam of Keen Technical Solutions in Traverse City.
Less Cancer’s Bike Ride, Split the Mitt, was established for cyclists to raise funds and awareness in support of Less Cancer’s efforts to end preventable cancers. This year’s event has riders covering 238 miles from Flint to Traverse City in two days, June 23rd &24th. Registration is $100 and is limited to 100 riders. Less Cancer’s goal for 2018 is to raise $200,000.
