Launched in 2010, the Dolphins Cycling Challenge (“DCC”) is a two-day tri-county charity cycling event. The DCC is dedicated to raising funds for lifesaving cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. We serve our mission by donating 100% of rider-raised funds to Sylvester, supporting healthy lifestyles, and encouraging community awareness and support of cancer research at Sylvester. In 2011, DCC II raised $1,070,000 for Sylvester, more than doubling the funds raised in the 2010 inaugural ride. Again in 2012, DCC doubled in ridership and in fundraising. The DCC presented a check for $2,200,000 to Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center on November 25th, 2012.
Rides begin in Miami-Dade at Sun Life Stadium, in Broward at Huizenga Plaza and in Palm Beach at CityPlace through the weekend. Along each route, water stops will be located approximately every 15-20 miles, with food, beverages, entertainment, restroom facilities, medical treatment and mechanical assistance available for riders.
Following the DCC weekend, cyclists will be honored by the Miami Dolphins on at a select home game. The check representing 100% of all rider-raised funds will be presented to Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center in a pregame on-field ceremony on that day.
