  1. When I rode this year I met a number of riders who came from outside of Ohio to participate! Each of them made a point that one feature of this event that they really appreciate is that 100% of the money raised goes to supporting research.

    It would be very cool I think if each of these grad students could provide a 1 or 2 sentence lay-person’s summary of how their work is relevant to the goal of ending cancer.
