The Penn Medicine Orphan Disease Center is hosting its fifth annual Million Dollar Bike Ride to raise money for rare disease research. Over 25 different disease teams will participate and have their funds matched dollar-for-dollar by Penn! In prior years, the efforts of “Team Cure CMD” have funded three research grants for different CMD sub-types - click here for details.
We are looking to make this our biggest fundraising year yet - with additional CMD families, cyclists, and other volunteers joining the effort! Note: while the team is raising funds for Collagen VI research, this event is not limited to Collagen VI families - all are welcome!
Ways to get involved include:
Register to ride with our team! All registration fees go towards our fundraising total!
Fundraise on our behalf! Your efforts will help us reach our goal even faster!
Ask your local bike club or spin class to join us and support our team! Other fundraising ideas are welcome!
