Dentistry Team Fights Cancer through Pelotonia Bike Tour

Pelotonia is a grassroots bike tour with one goal: to end cancer.

Pelotonia raises money for innovative and life-saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital, and the Solove Research Institute. Pelotonia proudly directs 100 percent of every dollar raised for cancer research.

Driven by the passion of its cyclists and volunteers, and their family and friends, Pelotonia's annual cycling experience is an event that inspires hope, energy, and determination. The event will take place August 20th through the 22nd.

Supported by The Ohio State University, Pelotonia is a community of people who come together to defeat cancer. We invite you to join in this effort with the College of Dentistry team (called a Peleton) in the following ways:

Ride with us: Register to ride one of the Pelotonia routes (choose from 23-180 miles).
