Cycliad Tour 2017
March 25, 2017 to May 07, 2017 in Birmingham , AL
Cycliad is a 1,000+ mile bicycle event encompassing four Southeastern states during the months of April and May. The purpose of Cycliad is to raise funds to support the patients and programs of the UAB Cancer Community Network, touching nearly 70,000 cancer patients in five Southeastern states. Cycliad offers multiple cycling options to accommodate all types of riders- from beginners, who never get on a bike, to casual weekend riders, and cyclists who are seeking an epic personal challenge. Participants can designate their fundraising to a specific Cancer Center within the UAB Health System Community Cancer Network or to the General Patient Services Fund. Funds raised by Cycliad go to support the expansion of the Patient Care Connect patient navigation program within each affiliated Cancer Center. This vital program pairs a trained, non-clinical navigator (think “patient advocate”) with individual patients to help them with questions, concerns, or difficulties that they may face.
