Your Velocity is about solving cancer and about celebrating and supporting those who have continued to pursue that mission amid a global pandemic.
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 3, 2021 - Velocity Day.
COVID-19 continues to affect our ability to gather in large numbers, but that won’t prevent the Velocity community from joining together as one unstoppable force to solve cancer. The patients, doctors and researchers at Columbia’s Cancer Center are still fighting every single day, and this community has their back. COVID-19 doesn’t stop cancer. So we won’t let it stop us.
Join Our Community. Join Our Goal. Join Your Velocity 2021.
HOW IT WORKS - IT'S UP TO YOU!
Your Velocity Riders will continue the proud tradition of supporting Columbia by cycling outdoors or indoors either 10, 25, 45, or 62.5 miles on or before Velocity Day. Plus, you’ll get cycling tips, suggested riding routes and challenges throughout the season to keep you motivated and connected to the Velocity riding community.
Your Velocity Your Way Participants will choose their own activity to complete on or before Velocity Day. It can be anything: walking, running, hiking, yoga, or even a dance party in your living room!
No matter what challenge you choose to complete, you’ll get a personal fundraising page, access to all of our fundraising resources and rewards, and a Velocity coach to support you with fundraising, training and anything else you need to complete Your Velocity.
October 3rd, 2021 is Velocity Day - a day to celebrate our commitment to solving cancer, honor friends and loved ones, and 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.
We’ll kick things off on Velocity Day with a virtual ceremony and interactive sponsorship hub. Then it’s your turn to complete your chosen challenge and connect with your fellow Velocity Riders and Your Way Participants over social media and through our virtual activations. Additional details on Velocity Day will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
