LOWVELO Cancer Research Ride Cycles On

Staff Report for Island Connection

The attitude of our last finisher, Dr. Leo Ferreira, who was determined to go all 100 miles. He posted on Twitter:
“I biked 100 miles for #cancer #research @lowvelo @muschollings. I was the last to arrive, got lost twice & was alone for most of it. But I made it. #Science is the same. If it feels comfortable, then you’re not pushing boundaries & maximizing #discovery.”

More than 1,000 volunteers, riders and community members rallied together on the 25, 50 and 100-mile routes, which included a 10-mile stretch on Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island. One-hundred percent of the rider-raised funds go toward MUSC’s Hollings Cancer Institute. Donations are being accepted through Dec. 31 at
