On October 11th 2015, Towpath Community Foundation Inc. and VanBortel Ford & Subaru will be conducting the 5th Annual Breast Cancer Ride and Run. Featuring 10, 25, and 50 mile family-friendly routes, this event is a great opportunity to contribute to an awesome local cause while having fun on your bike!  Register for 2015 ride here.                                                 

In an effort to expand beyond the cycling community, we have partnered with Medved Running and Walking for a 5k Fun Run and 1 mile nature walk, offering runners and walkers the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for this great cause. And yes, there are going to be some really cool prizes.

All fundraising proceeds will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Wilmot Cancer Center, Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester and other local and national foundations of our choice to help families in need. One in eight US women struggle with breast cancer in their lifetime. Many Rochesterians have a close friend or family member affected by the disease; we consider it important that the contributions benefit the Rochester community.  

The 5th Annual Breast Cancer Ride and Run strives to raise funds for breast cancer research while uniting local communities through raising awareness concerning the importance of breast health in a fun, supportive environment. Check out photos from last year on our facebook page. Mark your calendars for this great event!
