Our first ever Gran Fondo Sarasota Bike-A-Thon will take place online in a virtual format from September 1 to September 30.
The Bike-A-Thon is a way for us to safely come together to raise funds and support fighters, caregivers and others facing cancer. While we have gone virtual to ensure a safe experience for all, you can still sign up to celebrate those who fight. You can still sign up to honor those who have been touched by this disease. You can still sign up to raise funds to support our mission to provide Free Peer-to-Peer support and resources to cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers so no one on Florida’s Suncoast faces cancer alone .
- Virtual Kickoff – On September 1 we will meet at the Virtual Bike-A-Thon “starting line” through a Facebook Live Event.
- Online Activities and Events – Stay tuned to our social media channels for exciting incentives, inspiring stories, pro tips, fun fundraising challenges and more!
- Closing Celebration – On October 4 we will celebrate our collective stories of triumph, acts of courage, tributes of love, and community support at Nathan Benderson Park with both a 30 and 60 mile ride
