With Over $1 Million Raised for Cancer Research, the Victory Ride Leads Local Cancer Fundraising Rides
Cary, NC [October 21, 2021] – The V Foundation for Cancer Research, a top-rated cancer research charity, is excited to announce the fifth annual Victory Ride to Cure Cancer, presented by Braswell Family Farms, will take place on May 21, 2022. Since its inception, the Victory Ride has raised over $1 million for cancer research, making it the largest, active Triangle-based ride funding cancer research.
“We are grateful to all who have supported this event, propelling it to become a premier charity cycling event in the Triangle,” said Evan Morris, director of Community Events. “2022 will be an even larger event with more festivities to engage riders and their families, and ultimately raising more dollars for lifesaving research.”
The 2022 Victory Ride will begin and end at NC State University’s Centennial Campus and will offer 10-, 30-, 60- and 100-mile distances on greenways and roads, as well as on-site spin classes to accommodate cyclists at any level. Additionally, riders can take part in MyVictory Month, a virtual experience preceding the event giving participants the flexibility to choose how and when they ride while joining cycling and non-cycling competitions leading up to May 21.
“I ride because being on two wheels always reminds me how beautiful and sacred life can be,” said Mike Porvaznik, a four-time Victory Ride finisher. “I want to make sure everyone can enjoy that feeling for as long as possible, and that’s why I ride to achieve victory over cancer.”
All event-day riders are asked to fundraise a minimum of $250 with 100% of rider-raised funds supporting Duke Cancer Institute, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center, as well as breakthrough cancer research nationwide.
