Fourth Annual Victory Ride to Cure Cancer Moved to August 2021
Event’s MyVictory Month Virtual Experience to Begin in July
Cary, NC [January 26, 2020] – The V Foundation for Cancer Research, a top-rated cancer research charity, announced the fourth annual Victory Ride to Cure Cancer, presented by Braswell Family Farms, previously scheduled for May, will take place on August 28, 2021. The event’s month-long virtual experience, “MyVictory Month,” will begin on July 28 and lead up to ride day. The event has been rescheduled to ensure the health and safety of riders, volunteers and everyone involved during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Holding a safe and responsible event continues to be our first priority,” said Evan Morris, director of Community Events at the V Foundation. “In addition, our late summer event date allows more time for riders to train safely.”
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 leading up to the event day. The day of the live event, 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.
“Team Reeb is excited for the 2021 V Ride,” said Boyd Safit, team captain. “We are ready to double our efforts this year. The late summer date will hopefully allow the pandemic situation to improve so we can all have a safe and wonderful experience. It also gives us more time for fundraising, as Team Reeb has a long history of supporting cancer related charities.”
100% of rider-raised funds benefit cancer research at Duke Cancer Institute, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Wake Forest Baptist Health Comprehensive Cancer Center, as well as breakthrough cancer research nationwide. Corporate sponsorships are available for companies looking to unite employees for a charity event while giving back to the community. Since its inception, the Victory Ride has raised over $650,000 for cancer research.
The V Foundation for Cancer Research looks forward to hosting the 2021 Victory Ride to Cure Cancer at NC State University’s Centennial Campus pending COVID guidelines. As always, the health and safety of everyone involved in the event is paramount, and we will take necessary precautions per state and health officials.
