For the fourth year, CancerCare is a participating charity in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour on Sunday, May 5. This event is a 40-mile ride for 32,000 cyclists car-free across New York City.
This year we have 25 charity slots for the Bike Tour. Signing up through CancerCare reserves a spot for you near the starting line as well as several other benefits. You also get the chance to register before the lottery registration period.
To register you must commit to raising $1,000. Your efforts will help provide free, professional support services to anyone affected by cancer. Team members will receive a CancerCare Dri-FIT shirt, water bottle, and a social gathering in order to meet the other CancerCare team cyclists.
You can do all your fundraising online through the CancerCare Bike Tour website. Once you are a confirmed team member, CancerCare will provide you with a link to create your personal page and start fundraising. Your sponsorships can be any combination of cash, checks, money orders, and donations by credit card. Checks and money orders should be made payable to CancerCare.
Thank you for supporting CancerCare.
STEPS TO REGISTER AND START FUNDRAISING:
Fax, email or mail your CancerCare registration form - You will be asked to provide a working credit card number. Don’t worry. Your credit card will not be charged. We only keep it on file in case you do not meet your fundraising obligation. If you do not raise the full $1,000 by May 19 (two weeks after the race), you will be charged the difference.
CancerCare will confirm your registration and provide you with the link to create your fundraising page on the CancerCare Bike Tour website; then start fundraising online!
You will be sent the link to the TD Five Boro Bike Tour waiver online. Complete the waiver and then you are fully registered!
Please send checks and money orders (payable to CancerCare) to:
