Charity Spotlight: VeloSano

Today’s medical researchers are making greater strides than ever before. To make their work a reality, though, they need funding and support – and that’s what VeloSano is all about.

 

Taking its name from the Latin phrase for “swift cure,” VeloSano is the premier fundraising initiative of the Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center and Cleveland Clinic Children’s. Uniting doctors, nurses, researchers, technicians, and other science and medical professionals across dozens of affiliated hospitals and centers, the Cleveland Clinic cares for thousands of patients annually while advancing cancer research. The funding provided from VeloSano supports cancer research efforts including clinical trials, genomics research and genomics-based cancer care, immunotherapy research, and more.

 

VeloSano’s “Bike to Cure” fundraising allows anyone to get involved, either as a rider, a volunteer, or a donor. Interested parties can register with the organization, either on their own or joining an existing fundraising “team,” then start reaching out to their network to fundraise, similar to other charity runs, marathons, and similar events. VeloSano offers different events, with shorter or longer bike routes, so that even less-experienced bikers can take part. 100% of funds raised go directly to cancer research, with Corporate and Financial Partners helping Cleveland Clinic with operational costs to allow this “100% for the cure” fundraising. To date, VeloSano has supported over 200 research projects with over $24 million in funds, with many more to come.

 

“VeloSano allows every one of us to get involved in the fight against cancer,” said Tim Besett, Direct of Client Relationship Development at Blue Rock Search. “With 100% of funds raised going directly to cancer research, their work lets everyday people make a real difference and gives medical professionals the support they need to move us towards a future where no more lives are shattered by a devastating cancer diagnosis.”
