    Description

    The CancerCare Gala is the premier social event at CancerCare for its trustees, donors and corporate partners. More than 500 people including community and business leaders, corporate partners, and celebrities are expected to attend. Last year’s attendees included Katie Couric, Chef David Burke, Mayor David Dinkins and Jessye Norman.

    The Gala is an annual opportunity for CancerCare to honor individuals and organizations that have made substantial contributions to improving the lives of people affected by cancer through their partnerships with CancerCare. The Gala raises crucial funds for and increases awareness of the organization’s free, specialized programs for cancer patients and their loved ones, including counseling and support groups, educational workshops and publications, and financial and co-payment assistance.

    Location Battery Park, New York, NY

    Description

    CancerCare is a participating charity in the 2015 TD Five Boro Bike Tour. This event is a 40-mile ride for 30,000 cyclists car-free across New York City. We have 20 charity slots for participants committed to raising a minimum of $1,000 for CancerCare’s free, professional support services for anyone affected by cancer. Signing up through CancerCare reserves a spot for you near the starting line. The event sells out quickly so secure your spot today!

    The bike tour starts in Lower Manhattan. The ride heads north through the heart of Manhattan to Central Park and continues on to historic Harlem and the Bronx, returning south along the East River on the FDR Drive. From there it crosses into Queens and then Brooklyn, where cyclists take over the highway before making the thrilling climb up—and down—the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Staten Island. The route is 42 miles, mostly flat except for the bridges.
