Riding to Save Lives
Chainbreaker isn't your typical fundraising campaign. It's a "grassroots effort" to bring people together for a common cause, ending cancer. “The best way to get people to ride and to get people to be part of our movement is to be face to face. And so we laugh in the office and constantly say we will go anywhere, anytime, to meet with anyone to talk about Chainbreaker," said Jennifer Waldron, Director of Chainbreaker, in an interview with MSP Magazine.
In just its second year, Chainbreaker is looking to grow in order to help cancer patients worldwide. Last year's inaugural ride brought in $1.7 million for cancer research at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center. In all, 1,021 cyclists took part riding anywhere from 25 miles to the full 180 mile course.
