Riding through The Capitol Region’s picturesque countryside in two days. Sure, it sounds like a lot — and it’s meant to be. But make no mistake, this event isn’t just for athletes or cycling enthusiasts. The 2014 Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals is for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause. All you need is motivation, a bike and a helmet.
Make no mistake, your participation in The Ride to Conquer Cancer is transforming cancer medicine. Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial Hospital, and Suburban Hospital are using scientific discoveries to determine which treatments and screening interventions will work best for each patient. In this new model, the promise of personalized medicine is becoming a reality. The work of Johns Hopkins physicians and scientists are ensuring we get the right treatments to the right patients at the right time.
Your 2-day cycling adventure begins as you gather with fellow Riders for an inspiring Opening Ceremony, where we’ll remember those lost to cancer and honor those continuing the fight. After an energizing sendoff, you’ll Ride out of DC with a renewed sense of purpose, as you follow the route through some of The Capitol Region’s most beautiful scenery.
Lining the route every 10-20 miles, you’ll find fully stocked Pit Stops with all the snacks and hydration you’ll need to keep going. Day One culminates with arrival at Camp, where you can enjoy a cold beer, a hot shower, and a well-deserved massage before a fun evening of entertainment and socializing.
After camping overnight, Day Two will lead you further through the inspiring landscape, as you make your way toward the Finish Line — a high energy celebration of your epic Ride and the amazing impact you’ve made in the quest to conquer cancer. For more details visit www.ridetovictory.org
