Thousands of South Floridians are getting their bikes and their stamina ready to ride in the fight against cancer at the 8th annual Dolphins Cancer Challenge.
The event begins Friday February 9 at the DCC VIII Kickoff Party, followed by the DCC signature event on Saturday Feb. 10 that will include five bike routes through South Florida, a run/walk 5K and a finish line celebration concert by the Goo Goo Dolls with Big Head Todd and The Monsters.
One hundred percent of the money raised in the DCC goes to research at the University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. These donations support healthy lifestyles, community awareness and cancer research at Sylvester.
Since 2010, DCC riders have raised more than $22.5 million dollars.
CBS4 is a proud sponsor of the Dolphins Cancer Challenge and our own Chief Meteorologist Craig Setzer will once again be riding the Hurricanes Hundred, a 100-mile course.
Last year, Craig rode for his mother, a cancer survivor. This year, he’s riding for EVERYONE who is fighting cancer and looking for a cure.
