The Basics

When you register for the Victory Ride to Cure Cancer presented by CBS 17, you join a community of passionate individuals who want to stop cancer. The money you raise will help achieve Victory Over Cancer®. 100% of all funds you raise will benefit cancer research.

You are on our team, and we are here to help. There are lots of tools to inspire you in the Participant Center, and you can reach us at [email protected].

Your Impact

Riders participating in the in-person or virtual rides are strongly encouraged to set up fundraising pages. All rider-raised funds benefit game-changing research at Duke Cancer Institute, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center, as well as research centers nationwide.

How to Ask for Support

The number one reason people donate is because they were asked. Your friends and family won’t know what you are doing or how they can support you if you don’t ask! Remember, you're not asking for a gift for yourself. You are giving others an opportunity to support cancer research.

Start by making a list of everyone you know. You never know who might be willing to support you (family, friends, colleagues, your doctor, businesses you frequent, the delivery person, etc.) or who has been touched by cancer.

Build your fundraising request with these four easy steps:

  1. Share your story! Explain why cancer research is so important and how it impacts you.
  2. Address what you are doing about it.
  3. Ask your donor to take a specific action.
  4. Give your donor a chance to respond.
