Welcome to Bike For Hope Minnesota.  We are a group of volunteers who are passionate about raising money to further research and promote early detection of Lung Cancer.

Lung Cancer currently has a 16% survival rate and claims more lives annually (2500 in Minnesota and 160,000 in the US) than breast cancer, colon cancer and pancreatic cancer combined!  It's under-reseached and under funded due to the inaccurate stigma that the disease only affects smokers.  The reality is that over 50% of new cases are non-smokers, either never smoked or are former smokers.  There are only $1,442 federal dollars spent per cancer death for lung cancer compared to $26,398 spent per cancer death for breast cancer even though lung cancer kills twice as many women.

So grab your bike and join us in our endeavor to raise money for hope, awareness, and a cure to this devastating disease.

All donations will go to A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation. www.breathofhope.org
