MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline and Indy car driver Ryan Hunter paid a visit to cancer patients in Miami today.

The sports stars visited Alex’s place at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

They’re supporting the Dolphins Cycling challenge, which raises money in the fight against cancer.

The two spent some time cheering up young patients.

“I understand that the Dolphins are a big part of this community, and hopefully, gets to the point where we’re a positive impact on this community,” said Hunter Ray.

The Dolphins Cycling Challenge began three years ago, and will include more than two thousand riders.

CBS4, a corporate sponsor of the event, has a team which includes VP/General Manager Adam Levy,  Anchors Eliott Rodriguez and Summer Knowles, Meteorologist Craig Setzer and Sports Anchor Kim Bokamper.

The CBS4 crew is taking part in the 30-40 mile race on November 2nd.

The Dolphins Cycling Challenge has raised about $4 million for cancer research since its inception in 2010. The goal is to raise as much as $10 million.

One hundred percent of the money raised goes to research at the University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The two-day challenge consists of seven different routes that bikers can take, throughout the tri-county area.

Riders have already raised more than $1.1 million.
