The Dolphins Cycling Challenge Board of Directors announced today that the fifth annual Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC) will be held on February 7-8, 2015. Previously held in November each year, DCC V will be moved permanently to the weekend after the Super Bowl. The Dolphins Cycling Challenge is a two-day, tri-county cycling event dedicated to raising funds for lifesaving cancer research. 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 rider-raised funds going directly to fund critical cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Since its launch in 2010, the Dolphins Cycling Challenge has raised almost $7 million.
"We are excited about the upcoming fifth annual Dolphins Cycling Challenge and the move to February 2015,” said Dolphins Cycling Challenge CEO Michael Mandich. “The new date allows us to ensure a stadium finish for both days, plan new activities during 2014 and receive additional support from the Miami Dolphins for this important event for cancer research.”
“I am extremely passionate about fighting and winning the battle against the plague of our generation, cancer. Every dollar raised by DCC riders funds research to fight cancer in our South Florida community,” said newly elected Chairman, Richard Berkowitz. “I am honored to work with the Miami Dolphins and the University of Miami to raise funds to pay South Florida doctors and researchers to develop protocols and methodologies to help cure cancer.”
Registration for DCC V will open on May 1, 2014. For more information, visit www.RideDCC.com.
