Dolphins Cycling Challenge hits 1000 riders two months out from DCC weekend
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (September 12, 2013) – The Dolphins Cycling Challenge announced today that registered riders for DCC IV has passed the 1,000 mark, doubling the number of riders from this day last year. Ridership is on pace to reach the goal of 2,500 riders by DCC weekend – November 2nd and 3rd. Doubling riders means more money raised for cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, which to date has raised almost $4,000,000 in its first three years of existence.
“The excitement within the community and among our teams is growing every day,” said Dolphins Cycling Challenge CEO, Michael Mandich. “We are honored so many people will ride to tackle cancer this November and hope that many more sign up in the next few weeks.”
Local companies such as Lennar, Related, FPL, AutoNation, American Airlines, SunTrust, Regions Bank, Duffy’s, United Healthcare, Publix, Turnberry, and South Florida Ford have already committed to building teams to ride and support the event.
