South Florida dignitaries, cyclists and physicians held a news conference at Miami Dolphins Training Camp Wednesday to promote the upcoming Dolphins Cycling Challenge IV to benefit cancer research.
The mega charity event will roll out from Sun Life Stadium on Nov. 2nd and 3rd. There are more than 2,000 riders already registered who have raised more than $1.1 million.
One hundred percent of the money will go to research at Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The two-day challenge consists of seven different routes that bikers can take, throughout Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach.
Since it began, the Dolphins Cycling Challenge has raised $3.8 million.
The DCC will also pay tribute to late Dolphins player Jim “Mad Dog” Mandich.
The Dolphins launched the cycling challenge in 2010 to honor Mandich as he was battling bile duct cancer.
Bikers will start at Sun Life Stadium and then ride for 170 miles over the next two days.
There’s also a 30-mile leg for those wanting a shorter ride.
