Help us find a cure for cancer.
CLEVELAND — EDITOR’S NOTE: The video in the player above is from a previous story.
The countdown is on! In just a month and a half, Team WKYC will take on VeloSano 8 and ride for a cure to cancer.
VeloSano is a year-round fundraising initiative, culminating in an annual bike ride challenge, to support lifesaving cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. The name is Latin for “swift cure.” Since the inaugural ride in 2014, more than $24 million has been raised, 100 percent used to fund cancer research in Northeast Ohio.
To date, VeloSano has supported 170 cancer research projects. Those projects often go on to earn research grants from the National Institutes of Health and elsewhere, extending VeloSano’s reach to more than $46 million.
WKYC studios is a founding partner of the event since 2014.
VeloSano 8 rides September 11, 2021, with four routes through the greater Cleveland area. Team WKYC is 33 riders strong, with each rider committing to raise hundreds of dollars toward the goal. You can learn more about our team by clicking HERE.
On August 11th, 3News anchor Sara Shookman will anchor our early evening newscasts from her bike seat, raising awareness and funds for VeloSano 8 efforts.
