LETTER: Bike Ride Coming to Redmond, WA

LETTER:  The first-ever Obliteride is going through your community this August. We wanted to let you know so you can alert your neighbors and also invite them to join in this movement to end cancer at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Driven by the goal to end cancer, Obliteride is a new, community-wide effort to accelerate lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch. It culminates in a fundraising bike ride Aug. 10-11, 2013. Thanks to Obliteride sponsors, 100% of every dollar raised will directly benefit cancer research right here in our community. 
Obliteride participants will be riding through your community on Saturday August 10th, 2013. We are not planning to close any streets and we are securing permits to ensure we are following all of the necessary precautions to keep riders safe and reduce congestion in your community.  Read More >>
We are asking that as Obliteride passes through your community in August that community leaders, citizens and local businesses join in by riding, fundraising, volunteering or cheering on riders. Obliteride provides a great opportunity to build community in your town. We hope you’ll consider organizing a team of residents that train, ride and celebrate together.
Please share information about Obliteride with your neighbors and encourage them to participate. We’re happy to provide posters and brochures to help you spread the word and garner the support of your neighbors. If you’d like to ride or organize a team, have questions, or want more information, please visit or email me directly to get started. We’d also welcome the chance to come to a community meeting to share more about Obliteride.
Thanks in advance for welcoming Obliteride into your community this summer. We look forward to creating an annual tradition with your community and together saving lives faster.
