BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Ride for Roswell has announced the 2021 ride is set to take place Saturday, August 7.

Officials say there will be two ways to participate in 2021:

  • Ride with us: Ride as an individual or with a team on Saturday, August 7 at one of multiple locations.
  • Ride your own way: Ride any distance and at any location during the month of August.

“The Western New York community and our riders showed up in a big way in 2020 and we’re committed to creating another fun and impactful Ride for Roswell event in 2021,” says Dr. Candace Johnson, president and CEO at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. “If we’ve learned anything this year, it’s that cancer doesn’t stop. There’s new research and clinical trials that need funding, better treatments to be discovered and more lives to be saved, all because of the continued support of the WNY community. I am energized and excited to see what’s in store for the Ride for Roswell in 2021 and I know this community will continue to join us as we ride for our patients and ride to end cancer.”

Registration for the 2021 ride opens to the public March 1. All funds raised support cancer research and patient care at Roswell Park.

In 2020 the ride raised over $3.6 million, since 1996 more than $56 million has been raised.
