With sadness, we announce the end of the Canary Challenge cycling event.
Held annually in September, the Canary Challenge raised funds for early cancer detection research. It was a bike ride, not a race, with five routes, easy to more challenging. Whether you were an individual, corporation or group of friends, when you signed up for the Canary Challenge you became a part of an inspiring community.
Since 2011, more than 2,500 riders and walkers raised more than $7 million dollars for cancer early detection research. Unfortunately, the Foundation announced that the 2018 Canary Challenge would be the last event of this successful eight-year initiative.
The Canary Foundation, however, invites everyone to continue to 'ride along' and work with them towards a shared vision to continue advancing programs in prostate, ovarian, breast, lung, and pancreatic cancers. Members of the community can learn more by receiving 'The Challenge' newsletter, a short quarterly summary of the Foundation’s initiatives. The Canary Center is currently exploring possibilities with other partners to continue the promise of this annual event.
