October 2019 - Velocity - Columbia's Ride to End Cancer

We’re riding to the end of cancer at Columbia. We’re proving the power of Velocity.

Velocity is a cycling event benefiting Columbia’s Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Ride will take place on Sunday, October 6, 2019. With a unique route model that offers several ways to join the ride both on and off your bike, Velocity has something for everyone. Ride 10, 25, 45, or 62.5 miles (100K). Riders begin at four different Start Areas and merge together onto a single route to cross the GW Bridge and end at Columbia as one unstoppable force.

Register with the code FUNDLOVE19 and get 10% off your registration fee.

100% of your fundraising goes to research, patient services and essential infrastructure to improve treatment outcomes for cancer patients. Velocity Riders have a huge impact not just at Columbia, but on the worldwide battle against cancer.

FOUNDER'S LETTER

Fund Love was founded by Diane O. Zaccagnino, a businesswoman, 'dream-catcher', artist, community volunteer, cancer 'warrior', and most of all a Sister to anyone in need.Fund Love was founded by Diane O. Zaccagnino, a businesswoman, 'dream-catcher', artist, community volunteer, cancer 'warrior', and most of all a Sister to anyone in need. Diane died in 2015, more than five years after being diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a lethal form of brain cancer.

After a difficult hospital stay, in 2015, Diane became frustrated with her Family, as they encouraged her to rest and recover. She told them that she needed to work because there were so many people to help. Weeks later, Fund Love was launched to spread love and help patients and families throughout the cancer community, starting with its inaugural campaign, I AM MORE THAN CANCER.
