Ride for Roswell, where the community comes together with a shared mission: to end cancer. Everyone in this community knows someone who has been touched by cancer. The Ride for Roswell is the perfect way to be part of the fight to end cancer and support the friends, family, coworkers and neighbors in your life who have fought or are in the fight against cancer. Building upon the beloved traditions of the past 28 years, this year’s event brings exciting new opportunities and enhancements as well as many of the same routes and experiences that the WNY community has come to love and enjoy.
This year’s new changes:
- The return of the Canada route – a 44-mile route that takes you from Roswell Park, over both the Peace Bridge and Rainbow Bridge, ending at UB.
- A move across campus at UB to allow for more space to enjoy the Ride.
- New fundraising rewards for fundraising starting with your first donation all the way up to $10,000
Overall, this event offers 9 routes ranging from 5 to 100 miles so there’s a Ride Day experience for every age and skill level. You can register as an individual, create a team or join an existing team. No matter how you ride, know you’re making a difference in the fight to end cancer. If you can’t ride, there are other ways you can support Roswell Park through the Ride for Roswell including volunteering or donating to a rider. Sign up to Ride!
