On September 11, 2021 we will Ride Closer to Free. We will ride to deliver hope. We will ride to celebrate and remember. We will ride because we must.
The 2021 Closer to Free Ride is a virtual ride experience.* Whether we ride together or from afar, the power of the Closer to Free Ride remains. One hundred percent of the funds we raise power the unparalleled research and care at Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Cancer Center. And we can assure you that whether this is your first Closer to Free Ride or your 11th, it likely won’t be your last.
*Based on the recent progression of COVID-19 variants and cases in our areas and guidance from our medical team at Yale New Haven Health, we have made the difficult decision to return to a fully virtual ride for 2021.
