Cycling For A Future Without Cancer

Cycling for a Future without Cancer

The Massey Challenge was established for runners, but what’s cooler than running? CYCLING! The Cycling for a Future without Cancer team is hijacking the platform to put on a bicycle ride: Ride for a Cure 2024.

A bike ride ending at the Pony Pasture (distances,12.5, 25K or 50K)
A post-ride breakfast and beer at Dr. Renato Martins’ house
A way to make a difference by helping to cure cancer right here in RVA by cycling

The Massey Challenge has raised over $5 million from its connection to the Monument Avenue 10K. NOW WE ARE GOING FURTHER WITH A CYCLING EVENT, Ride for the Cure 2024. Register by clicking on the link below!


To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Massey Comprehensive Cancer Center and to raise funds for the next 50 years of curing cancer right here in RVA!

NOT A 10K! Remember that we have hijacked this Massey Challenge page from runners. After you join or donate, you will receive a goofy email telling you to make sure to sign up for the 10K and encouraging you to get in your practice runs before the big day. Feel free to go cheer on your running friends at the 10K on April 20th, but YOU HAVE SIGNED UP FOR A BIKE RIDE ON MAY 4TH. Because CYCLING IS COOLER THAN RUNNING!
