Pedal for Pēds Bike Ride:
This year, the UNC Division of Pediatric Hematology Oncology is sponsoring our third Pedal for Pēds Bike Ride. New this year is a silent auction! Bidding will be silent and online until September 14th!
The ride will be held Saturday, September 15th, 2012, from 8:00 am-1:00 pm starting at McDougle Middle School, Chapel Hill, NC. There will be 50 and 28 mile routes through beautiful Carrboro, Orange and Alamance Counties. Participants are welcome to ride all or part of the routes. We anticipate 200 cyclists, more than a hundred volunteers, and press mentions through our divisional & local newsletters – and maybe a radio announcement or two!
Proceeds from the ride will be used to support our mission to care for and cure all children with cancer and blood disorders in the state of North Carolina through pediatric cancer research, fellowship education, and other great programs like cancer survivor college scholarships, and food and gas cards for our families.
Growing areas of research in the division include but are not limited to PNET/Ewing sarcoma, neuroblastoma, hemophilia and thrombophilia, late effects of cancer treatment, sickle cell disease, HLH, and transplantation. We also have a fellowship program dedicated to training the next generation of pediatric hematologist oncologists, and we rely on fundraising and grants to pay for this program. Feel free to ask us about designating your fundraising for any specific area of our program.
To register as a cyclist for the race, please sign up at Sportoften.
