We are excited to support one of our partners, Gene McManus, who is cycling in the Paceline Ride on May 11th. Gene is excited to participate because Paceline is more than a ride. It’s a community event based in Augusta, Georgia where 100% of all fundraising goes to fund critical research and survivorship at the Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University.
As mentioned on their website, Paceline Ride describes why the ride was created. “It’s simple really: for the physical challenge. Many charities fundraise through walks or 5ks, which are simpler physical acts to stand for the fundraising efforts. Paceline strategically selected the route distances for the bike ride to offer a variety of physically challenging routes for people of all levels…Will it be easy? Not exactly, but we want the challenge because we know battling cancer is far more challenging.”
Gene will be riding the 100 mile route from Augusta to Thompson with an elevation gain of 4,178 feet. He is looking forward to the challenge and camaraderie of the ride while supporting the Georgia Cancer Center’s critical research.
This year is the inaugural Paceline Ride and we’re excited for Gene to be a part of it! If you would like to support Gene and the Georgia Cancer Center, you can do that by donating to his fundraising campaign here:
