The event was sponsored by the UNM Cancer Center and cyclists had the choice to participate in 25, 50 or 100-mile rides.

More than 150 took part in the event, which raised money for cancer treatment, research, clinical trials and education across New Mexico.

“We have several different research areas that riders can choose from on where the money was donated to,” said Amy Liotta, program operations director for the Cancer Center. “It’s helping us with research and pilot programs and researchers find those cures, so it’s absolutely important.”

The total amount of money raised hasn’t been released, but you can still donate until the end of October by visiting the initiative’s website.
