CT Challenge Gears Up for Annual Bike Ride

More than 1,000 riders will take to the streets of Fairfield County Saturday to bike toward a common goal: empowering cancer survivors. This eighth annual Connecticut Challenge Bike Ride kicks off Saturday, July 28 at 8 a.m. from the Fairfield County Hunt Club in Westport. Cyclists will ride 10-, 25-, 50-, 75-, and 100-mile routes in the organization's largest fundraiser. Eighty-six cents of every dollar raised will go toward CT Challenge's programming for cancer survivors and their caregivers; and this year much of the fundraising will go toward the nation's first Center for Survivorship, located at 250 Pequot Avenue in Southport. The Center, slated to open to the public at the end of September, will offer numerous free programs and classes to cancer survivors, including yoga, Pilates, Spinning, one-on-one consultations and cooking demos with registered dietitians, and support groups.
