The V Foundation for Cancer Research recently announced that this year's Victory Ride to Cure Cancer — a one-day charity cycling event presented by Braswell Family Farms and benefiting the V Foundation — will take place on Saturday, May 16, at North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus in Raleigh, North Carolina.

This is the third annual Victory Ride to Cure Cancer. One hundred percent of rider-raised funds support Duke Cancer Institute, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and Wake Forest Baptist Health Comprehensive Cancer Center, as well as breakthrough cancer research nationwide.

Last year the V Ride raised more than $230,000. Duke Cancer Institute — led by executive director of DCI, Michael Kastan, MD, PhD, and colorectal cancer survivor Ryan Switzer —  raised more than $20,000. There were more than 600 registered riders and volunteers.

Kastan and Switzer will be co-captaining Team DCI again this year. For more information and to register for the 2020 Victory Ride to Cure Cancer, visit Team DCI. Riders can register to ride a 10-, 30-, 60- or 100-mile route. There is also a virtual ride option for those who wish to support the cause, but don't plan to bike.

The V Foundation is currently offering an early bird discount of $10 off the ride-day registration fee. To qualify for the promotion, register for the ride by January 16 and use promo code VICTORY20. With your efforts today, you can help create a cancer-free tomorrow.
