The Central Utah Clinic Foundation is hosting the second annual Utah Rides for Cancer event on August 16, 2014, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event brings the community together to raise funds and awareness for local cancer patients. Â Many cancer patients must travel long distances to receive their treatments, making trips to and from the clinic expensive and burdensome for them and their families. Â Central Utah Clinic Foundation strives to alleviate some of the burden of cancer treatments by helping patients pay for gas and lodging costs incurred through their travels to the clinic.
Utah Rides for Cancer consists of three rides: metric century (70 miles), half metric century (30 miles), and fun ride (10 miles). Â The event will also include a bake sale and a gift basket auction. Â Each riderÂ will receive a URC t-shirt and food after the ride.
