NOTHING STOPPED US FROM
RIDING CLOSER TO FREE

On September 11, 2021 more than 2,100 participants brought us more than $2.1 million Closer to Free! We rode to deliver hope. We rode to celebrate and remember.  We rode because we must.

The 2021 Closer to Free Ride was a virtual ride experience, but whether we rode together or from afar, the power of the Closer to Free Ride remained. One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to power the unparalleled research and care at Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Cancer Center. We look forward to returning even bigger and better in 2022 - so save the date for September 10, 2022!
