Obliteride: Ride to Help End Cancer
Driven by one goal to end cancer, Obliteride is a new, community-wide effort to raise money to accelerate lifesaving research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. They are creating a movement of people committed to obliterating cancer and saving lives faster. Averro is both sponsoring and having a team to show our support of Fred Hutchinson and the Obliteride campaign.
This movement culminates in an empowering fundraising bike ride experience August 9-11, 2013. With four routes ranging from 25-180 mile in length, Obliteride offers everyone the opportunity to make their mark against cancer. They are creating the largest fundraising bike ride in Washington state to help obliterate cancer. They coming out bold, looking to net $2.5 million and have 2,500 riders the first year. Their goal is to ensure all Obliteride expenses are underwritten so 100% of every dollar raised stays in our community and goes directly to breakthrough cancer research, a feat next to no other cancer walk can own to.
Obliteride will be a quintessentially Northwest experience for all participants. From scenic routes along Lake Washington to local, high-quality food vendors, microbreweries and bands, everything will be first-class. Together as a community, the more we raise the closer we are to a cure. It takes all of us. Join the movement. Ride. Donate. Volunteer. Tell others. Ending cancer starts at Fred Hutch.
Join Obliteride and save lives faster.
