2023 Million Dollar Bike Ride!
Ride for a Reason with Dup15q In the 2023 Million Dollar Bike Ride!
June 10th, 2023
University of Pennsylvania campus in downtown Philadelphia
Dup15q Alliance is thrilled to be selected as a charity organization for the 2023 Orphan Disease Center Million Dollar Bike Ride!
The Million Dollar Bike Ride raises critical funds for rare disease research. For each rare disease team that raises a minimum of $20k, the Orphan Disease Center will match it, dollar for dollar, up to $30k, to be used to support a 1-year pilot grant for new dup15q research! That’s up to $60,000 in research funds for dup15q syndrome!
How can you help?
Ride: We need 10 Fundraiser Riders for the Day of the event. You can ride 10, 32 or 70 miles starting in the city, and ranging across the Greater Philadephia region.
Make a donation: Team Dup15q will need to raise $20,000 to get the matching funds.
Registration with Fundraising Fee: $30
(ODC requires each rider to raise a minimum of $250 by June 10th. Dup15q Alliance requests each rider set a fundraising goal of $2,000. Team Dup15q as a whole needs to raise a total of $20,00 or we don’t get the match)
During registration, you will be asked to join Team Dup15q. Your fundraising efforts will be linked to Team Dup15q.
After registration, you will be able to set up your fundraising page within Pledge It. Pledge It will also send you a separate email on how to access your fundraising page for future edits and use.
Registration with Fundraising includes this year’s Cycling Jersey!
100% of your fundraising dollars go to Team Dup15q Research Grant.
