ILS in the Community: President Kirk Pysher and International Launch Services are proud to donate to the Great Cycle Challenge USA in their fight to Kick Cancer’s Butt this month.
“Thank you so much for your making a donation to support Fighting for Finley in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer! Your donation will support life-saving research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of childhood cancer.”
Great Cycle Challenge started in 2015, and after just 3 years, the event has grown to become one of the biggest cycling events in the United States.
People of all ages, abilities and from every state across the country set themselves a personal riding goal and challenge themselves to pedal throughout June to fight kids’ cancer.
In 3 years, Great Cycle Challenge’s community of riders from all 50 states have ridden a total of 7,516,295 miles, and they have raised $9,219,511 in support of research to develop better treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.
Why? Because over 15,700 American children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and sadly, 38 children die every week.
Great Cycle Challenge USA is a national Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) fundraising initiative held throughout June.
