Those who register as virtual fundraisers can choose their own activity and participate in any way, anytime, and anywhere to fundraise for cancer research at Cleveland Clinic.

Ideal for families and beginner riders is the Guardians City Loop, a 6-mile loop around downtown Cleveland that will be open for two hours, allowing participants to complete one or two loops. Guardians City Loop riders will pass city landmarks and have the opportunity to ride around Progressive Field.

Since its inception in 2014, $37 million has been raised for VeloSano. Thanks to funding from partners, like founding partners the Kohl Fund and the Cleveland Guardians, all operational expenses incurred by the VeloSano initiative are offset to ensure that 100% of all dollars raised supports the cause.
