More than 1,200 cyclists biked between 30 and 100 miles across Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties as part of the fourth annual Dolphins Cycling Challenge earlier today. This major community initiative is a collaborative effort between the Miami Dolphins and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, with 100% of the proceeds going to directly to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
“DCC IV is shaping up to be our biggest and best yet,” said Dolphins Cycling Challenge CEO Michael Mandich. “Everyone bonded together today to make an impact in our fight against cancer and it was evident by the inspiration and fellowship that we are making a huge difference. I look forward to tomorrow and am excited that the money raised from this event will make such an impact here in South Florida.”
Day two of the DCC will begin Sunday and will feature several rides of various lengths. All Day 2 riders will enter Sun Life Stadium and join an on-field Finish Line Celebration. Additionally, child and pre-teen riders can take part in various courses set-up on the grounds of Sun Life Stadium as part of the alex’s place Kids Ride. For more information, visit www.RideDCC.com.
