Empire State Ride is more than an adventure across New York State. It’s the chance to advance cancer research from the seat of your bike. The funds raised by our road warriors fuel life-saving cancer research that is changing the future.
Whether you’re joining us for the weeklong adventure or tackling the 500+ Mile Hometown Challenge, our team is here to help you exceed your fundraising goals.
Let everyone know WHY you are riding in Empire State Ride. Upload a photo of you on a bike, or with the person you are riding for. Personalize the copy on the page. The more information you can share with potential donors, the better!
To be a great fundraiser, you’ll need to ask your friends, family and neighbors in the most effective way possible. Be direct and honest about why you chose to take on this 500+ miles challenge. Then, make a list of EVERYONE you want to ask and send it out.
