Event to Include MyVictory Month Virtual Experience
The V Foundation for Cancer Research, a top-rated cancer research charity, is excited to announce the fourth annual Victory Ride to Cure Cancer, presented by Braswell Family Farms, will take place on May 22, 2021. The event will also feature MyVictory Month, a virtual experience preceding the ride. During MyVictory Month, participants fundraising for lifesaving research have the flexibility to choose how and when they ride while joining cycling and non-cycling competitions.
“We’re excited to combine our in-person ride with the MyVictory Month virtual experience.” said Evan Morris, Director of Community Events at the V Foundation. “Our hope is that the virtual aspect will offer riders the chance to get involved earlier, raise more funds and build meaningful connections.”
“The Victory Ride is a rewarding and humbling experience,” said 2020 rider Nita Kroninger. “This year, I rode for my husband and my supporters’ loved ones. It is important to put personalities and faces to cancer fighters while raising money to support cancer research. I look forward to the 2021 event as we come together as a community to put an end to cancer.”
On event day, the Victory Ride will begin and end at NC State University’s Centennial Campus and will offer 10-, 30-, 60- and 100-mile distances to accommodate cyclists at any level. Additionally, for those who prefer stationary cycling, riders will have access to on-site spin bikes in partnership with CycleBar Brier Creek. All participants are asked to fundraise a minimum of $250 to help achieve Victory Over Cancer®. 100% of rider-raised funds from the Victory Ride support Duke Cancer Institute, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and Wake Forest Baptist Health Comprehensive Cancer Center, as well as breakthrough cancer research nationwide.
“Everyone has been touched by cancer, including our team here at Braswell Family Farms. The V Foundation works tirelessly to fund the vital cancer research needed to eradicate the disease, and we are so grateful to play a part in their mission,” said Trey Braswell, President of Braswell Family Farms. “Next year’s hybrid ride will expand the reach of who can participate and garner even greater success. Whether at home or together, we are all still fighting to beat cancer!”
Since its inception, the Victory Ride has raised over $650,000 for cancer research. For more information about the Victory Ride to Cure Cancer, please visit thevictoryride.org. Follow the Victory Ride on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @TheVictoryRide.
