Gran Fondo

We Care Because Cancer Doesn't

Walk, Run or Cycle to #FINISHCANCER

Saturday, September 23, 2017
New Location! Burwood Brewing Company

The Gran Fondo Cause

The Gran Fondo (the Great Ride) helps our friends, neighbors and loved ones who are fighting cancer. All funds raised stay local to benefit the Cancer Special Needs Fund of Providence St. Mary Foundation.

This fund provides our most vulnerable patients with gas cards, wigs, medication, rent and utility assistance and other supportive items not covered by insurance.

What's Included

Registration includes a run, walk or cycle event, lunch and a beverage from Burwood Brewing Company.

Use your Gran Fondo passport at neighboring businesses and enjoy great deals (passport valid 12 to 4 p.m. on event day). Wear any and all of the colors of cancer (the wilder, the better) to symbolize our purpose and celebrate survivors. Although the type of cancer that affects each of us may be different, we stand united to #FINISHCANCER.
