Latin for “swift cure”, VeloSano is a year-round, community-driven fundraising initiative to support lifesaving cancer research at Cleveland Clinic.The flagship fundraising event is “Bike to cure” weekend taking place each July. Riders choose from route options ranging from 10 to 190 miles. Each Rider commits to raise a pre-determined amount of money associated with their distance, and 1OO% of the dollars raised are awarded directly to research by spring of the following year. In five years, over $17 million is already hard at work in the fight against cancer.

There are many ways to get involved! Ride and/or volunteer during "Bike to cure" weekend in July, or donate at any time. Not ready to ride a bike? You can fundraise year-round as a Virtual Rider Fundraiser.
