Columbia's Velocity Rides Again to Help Advance Cancer Research

For the second year, Velocity, Columbia’s Ride to End Cancer, raised more than $1 million to support cancer care and research. The outdoor cycling event on Sunday, Oct. 7, was even bigger than last year’s inaugural ride, with more than 800 participants—including more than 600 cyclists, virtual riders and sponsors. Said Dean Lee Goldman, MD, at the Finish Line festival, "I am grateful for your efforts, whether you rode, volunteered, fundraised, or just cheered here at the finish line. What you’ve done today will help our team at Columbia change and save more lives, because 100 percent of participant fundraising benefits research and patient care at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center.” For the full article, visit the Columbia University Irving Medical Center Newsroom.
