It’s All About Crushing Cancer. 

Welcome to the first annual Rush to Crush Cancer, a new community-based event that will impact cancer research and improve lives. It’s not a race but rather a ride bringing people together to pedal, partner, and participate to help raise critical funds for UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, a leader in cancer research and patient care.

The event will take place on May 20, 2023 and include three ride distances and many ways to get involved. There also will be a survivors walk for those who have been impacted by cancer.

As we prepare for this exciting event over the coming months, we will be sharing more information as it becomes available.
