We are very excited to announce that BMS will be participating in two epic cycling events – Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer (C2C4C) and the Race Across America (RAAM). Together our employees will ride and race over 5,000 miles to raise funds in support of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, and a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
The C2C4C team will travel east to west in an exciting endeavor, with 53 Oncology Sales Representatives coming together to live the mission – helping to fund innovative research that is already benefitting patients. These volunteers are novice riders, who have committed themselves to extensive training to complete their portion of the ride. The C2C4C riders will participate on one of 5 relay teams. Each relay team will ride a 400 mile stage. Ultimately, this 5 stage epic trek will take Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer riders from Stamford, CT to Oceanside, CA.
As they conclude their journey, the C2C4C team will hand the baton to 4 elite amateur cyclists from the BMS home office who will then begin the Race Across America. They will be one of 30 teams competing in what is considered “The World's Toughest Bike Race” – a non-stop, 3,000 mile endurance race from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD.
Together the C2C4C and RAAM teams will power even more awareness and fundraising. We hope that their support for SU2C’s groundbreaking cancer research will help bring new treatments to patients sooner. Thanks to their commitment, More Miles will mean More Memories for cancer patients.
The C2C4C event kicks off May 27th and the RAAM kicks off on June 14th. Please support our teams and SU2C by donating below.
