Cyclists invited to help battle cancer

January 30, 2012 FRAMINGHAM — Local cyclists are invited to join the American Cancer Society’s fourth annual Bicycles Battling Cancer (BBC) ride on June 10. The 2012 BBC event will start and finish at the Bolton Fairgrounds in Lancaster, and will feature three “loop” route options — century (100 miles), metric century (62 miles) and “lite” (30 miles). Riders may participate individually or as a team. Now through April 1, the registration fee is $75, and there is a low minimum fund-raising commitment of $300 for all riders. BBC allows anyone the opportunity to get fit and have fun, while raising funds to help the American Cancer Society create a world with more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life. Funds raised through BBC support the American Cancer Society’s critical mission to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. The American Cancer Society helps people stay well, by preventing cancer or detecting it early; get well, by being in their corner through every step of their cancer experience; by finding cures, through groundbreaking research and treatment discoveries; and by fight backing, through influencing public policy. The first 50 new riders to register for the BBC event will receive a 2012 Bike Jersey.
