Team Olender is using two wheels and a collective effort to make Michigan State University College of Human Medicine the nationwide leader in creating healthier, more vibrant communities. MSU Gran Fondo is the college’s mission in action – a big bike ride that inspires passion-fueled fundraising and breakthrough moments on the road all in support of our mission: the fight against skin cancer.
Our Team will come together Saturday, June 24, 2017, to ride and provide hope for the nearly 70,000 people in the U.S. expected to be diagnosed with melanomas of the skin this year. Our collaborative fundraising efforts will support the brilliant scientists exploring new therapies aimed at increasing long term survival for skin cancer patients, and ultimately, a better quality of life. And, if you don't think everyone can make a difference, think again!! This past January 4, MSU's researchers announced a breakthrough discovery: a chemical compound and potential new drug that reduces the spread of melanoma cells by up to 90 percent!
We hope you'll play a big part too. With 100% of every dollar donated going directly to skin cancer awareness, prevention and research at the MSU Medical School, we can continue make a direct impact. Thank you for your support and helping us make a difference.
