Partners


Corporate Impact

Magnify your brand, engage your community, and help fund the next big breakthroughs in cancer research. Companies are making a big difference in our fight against cancer through sponsorships, in-kind donations, matching gifts, and unifying teams of employees to ride. Thanks to partner support, 1OO% of every dollar raised by participants goes directly to cancer research.

1OO% to cancer research

That’s right, 1OO%. This would not be possible without our Corporate Partners. The financial and in-kind backing we receive from our partners covers all of our operational event costs, which in turn allows us to allocate every dollar raised by our participants to cancer research at Cleveland Clinic.
