Pilot Awards

Thank you for your interest in the VeloSano Pilot Awards. The goal of the VeloSano Pilot Awards is to provide seed funding for cancer research activities being performed at Cleveland Clinic. Latin for “swift cure”, VeloSano is a year-round, community-driven fundraising initiative with “Bike to cure” weekend serving as the flagship fundraising event held annually during the third full weekend in July. VeloSano 6 (July 19-21, 2019) was a huge success resulting in increases in terms of funds raised and participation (riders, virtual riders and volunteers). We are excited to announce this funding opportunity to eligible applicants.
