How far would you go to cure cancer? Team Wendy is joining the fight against cancer by participating in VeloSano, a cycling fundraising event that will take place July 17-19. We are building a team of Riders and Virtual Riders to participate in the second annual VeloSano.
VeloSano, Latin for "swift cure," is an effort that is bringing millions of dollars to our community all for one purpose – to beat cancer. At its core, it's a cycling event where riders commit to raise a pre-determined dollar amount by requesting support from personal contacts. 100% of the dollars raised by VeloSano Participants benefits cancer research at Cleveland Clinic.
Be a part of something fun and special.
The fun part is that you get on your bike and ride one of several options - from a 12-mile Fun Ride to a more challenging two-day 207-mile ride. There is a distance for everyone: from first-time riders to weekend warriors to veteran cyclists. Rest Stops and bike techs support us along each route, and a party awaits us in downtown Cleveland when we are done riding. Invite your colleagues, family and friends to join our team!
The special part is that we make a difference. Last year in the inaugural VeloSano, participants raised nearly $2 million for cancer research. Many participate for personal reasons when cancer has affected their life and we have all been touched by cancer in some way.
