Rye Brook, NY (June 6, 2022) – Every 180 seconds, someone in the U.S. has their life turned upside down by a blood cancer diagnosis. When this happens, the global leader in the fight against blood cancer, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), is there providing guidance, education and support every step of the way. For more than 70 years, LLS has remained laser-focused on its mission priorities: , and Policy & Advocacy. This wouldn’t be possible without the relentless work of thousands of participants and volunteers who raise funds through LLS’s powerful fundraising events, like the LLS’s premier charity cycling event, Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour.
Kicking off next month in Mequon, Wisconsin on July 23, the 30th Annual Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour is a two-day, 150-mile, fully supported cycling event that is open to riders of all ages and abilities. One of Wisconsin's most popular bike rides, the Scenic Shore 150 is the largest locally organized event for LLS and has officially been added to the organization’s exemplary national campaign portfolio.
“The beautiful shoreline of Lake Michigan is the perfect picturesque setting for a weekend of riding the shore for a cure,” said Coker Powell, LLS chief development officer. “We are so grateful for everyone involved in this year’s 2022 Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour — they are truly bringing us closer to a world without blood cancer.”
Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested more than $1.5 billion in cutting edge blood cancer research worldwide, and its support has been instrumental in the development of nearly every breakthrough in blood cancer treatment.
