Aug. 5, 2013

Obliteride is less than one week away and there is still time to register as a rider, virtual rider, or volunteer. Help support the fundraising bike ride where thanks to sponsors, 100% of every dollar raised will benefit cancer research at Fred Hutch.

Ride

It’s not too late to register to ride one of the four scenic routes that will tour western Washington on Saturday, August 10. Ride 25-, 50-, 100-, or 180-miles from Magnuson Park and be part of the inaugural ride and accelerate lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch.

Volunteer

Donate a few hours of your time to support rider safety and event operations. Become a parking marshal and help direct participants and volunteers to designated parking areas and to the shuttle. Or, be a course marshal and help ensure rider safety out on the course. Or, join the green team to help minimize impact on city parks.

Cheer on riders in your neighborhood and at Magnuson Park

Keep riders motivated by cheering them on as they pass your neighborhood and at the finish-line at Magnuson Park. Get out that crazy outfit, face paint, and cow bell! Make a sign and come cheer on Obliteride riders as they spin through your community to end cancer on Aug. 10 and 11. Your support will help keep Obliteride riders motivated all the way to the finish line. Gather your friends, family and neighbors, and line the routes or simply come to the end of your driveway to cheer on riders as they pass through your neighborhood.

Come out to Magnuson Park and join the celebration as riders pass through the finish-line. The free festival will have a full lineup of entertainment, including family-friendly bands.
