To our VeloSano family,

We are extremely grateful for your support and involvement in VeloSano over the years. As you know, Cleveland Clinic's top priority is keeping its patients, caregivers and communities safe and healthy, which is especially critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is with this in mind and after much consideration that the following decisions have been made for 2020:
  • "Bike to cure" weekend will evolve into an amazing Virtual VeloSano. While we won't be able to unite in person this summer, we look forward to offering unique and meaningful ways for everyone to engage with us. Whether you're biking, walking, cheering, gardening, etc., we can all still be together virtually the weekend of July 17-19.
  • Fundraising will continue, as the need for cancer research is more important than ever. However, for this year, we are removing the obligation to meet fundraising minimums.
Over the past six years, we have achieved remarkable accomplishments together and have provided hope and created advances in cancer research. Our Living Hope cancer community has dealt with challenge and adversity more than most. During these unprecedented times, it's more important than ever that we continue to work together, to support each other, to unify through hope and to persevere.

What will Virtual VeloSano look like? It's in the works, and we'd love your help! We invite you to share your ideas for how to make our virtual experience as fun and interactive as possible, as well as to share which aspects of "Bike to cure" weekend you hope we can maintain in some way. Please click here to share your thoughts.

We will continue to provide opportunities to support you and your team's fundraising. In the weeks ahead, we look forward to announcing the full details for what will be an extraordinary Virtual VeloSano this July.

For now, be well and take care of each other.

And, as always: Together, we are 1OO% for the cure!
Team VeloSano
