This year, Velocity is about solving cancer and about celebrating and supporting those on the front lines of the global pandemic. This year, It’s your why. It’s your how. It’s Your Velocity.
Your Velocity is your chance to support Columbia’s Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC) by riding, walking, running, or doing any activity of your choice on or before October 4, 2020 - Velocity Day.
Unfortunately, due to government regulations on large gatherings, and public health concerns, we will not be able to gather and ride our traditional Velocity event this year. That will not prevent us from coming together as one unstoppable force to support the patients, doctors, and researchers who need our help to fund COVID-19 recovery and support efforts at Columbia’s Cancer Center. Cancer does not stop during a pandemic and neither will we. The time is now for us to come together as a community with a common goal – to cure Cancer and COVID-19.
HOW IT WORKS
This year there’s no registration fee and no fundraising minimum required to participate, however, we encourage everyone to register and meet our suggested fundraising minimum ($500) or set their own goals - knowing that 100% of the funds raised will go to cancer research and COVID-19 recovery efforts at Columbia’s Cancer Center.
All you have to do is register as a Your Velocity participant and choose to complete an activity of your choice, or the Velocity Core 4 on or before October 4, 2020 (Velocity Day!). Customize your fundraising page by sharing what Your Velocity is and how you plan to accomplish your goal. All ages are welcome to join and we encourage family and team participation!
Velocity’s 2020 Ride Day will now be Velocity Day - a day to celebrate our commitment to solving cancer and a day to say thank you to our frontline heroes at the Cancer Center who dedicate their lives to ensure patients, and their families stay safe and continue to receive the care they need.
You will be invited to join us on the Velocity Day Hub to watch an online ceremony, complete a meaningful activity of your choice and engage with your Velocity community via social media, and more! Additional details on Velocity Day may be found here.
