More than 1,100 cyclists participated today in the seventh annual CT Challenge bike ride and raised $1,057,000 for cancer survivors, organizers said.
The cyclists gathered at Westport’s Fairfield County Hunt Club for the event which had riders registered for courses of 10, 25, 50, 75, or 100 miles.
“We want to thank all of the riders and volunteers from across Connecticut and across the country who joined us to ride in support of cancer survivors, making it a truly great statewide event and a great day for Connecticut,” said Bob Mazzone, the executive director of CT Challenge.
“There are now more survivorship programs in Connecticut than anywhere else in the U.S. today and we are proud to be providing support to many of them. The CT Challenge Bike Ride makes it all possible.”
