SARASOTA, Fla. – The Team Tony Cancer Foundation, a Sarasota-based nonprofit organization that provides free peer-to-peer cancer support and resources to cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers so no one on Florida’s Suncoast faces cancer alone, is hosting the Gran Fondo Sarasota Bike-a-thon 2020.
The Bike-A-Thon is a virtual fundraiser. It’s a way for us to safely come together to raise funds and support fighters, caregivers and others facing cancer.
From September 1st through September 30th, bikers will complete their own meaningful miles and collect pledges; per completed mile or contributors may choose to donate a set amount in support of a biker’s efforts. We will stay connected online as a community as we virtually cycle together. There is no registration fee, and no fundraising minimum.
On Sunday, October 4th, we will gather together in person, for our 3rd Annual Gran Fondo Sarasota at Nathan Benderson Park.(*subject to change based on CDC guidelines*) We will celebrate our collective stories of triumph, acts of courage, tributes of love, and community support at Nathan Benderson Park with both a 33 and 62.5 mile ride. This will be different from previous years as we follow social distancing guidelines.
Let’s show cancer patients and their families that we are still there for them, even when we’re apart.
Registration is now open at www.teamtony.org. To learn more about 2020 Bike-a-thon or for other information, call us any time toll free at 941-227-4404. You can also contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
About Team Tony Cancer Foundation
A 17-year brain cancer survivor and an avid cyclist, Tony McEachern’s vision of creating a peer-to-peer cancer support foundation became a reality in 2010 when the Team Tony Cancer Foundation officially launched. Located in Sarasota, Fla., the nonprofit’s mission is to provide free peer-to-peer cancer support and resources to cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers so no one on Florida’s Suncoast faces cancer alone. In 2019, the Team Tony Cancer Foundation provided more than $29,000 in copays, gas cards, flights, and other items related to the diagnosis of cancer, to fighters on Florida’s Suncoast.
