Thirteen years ago my childhood friend and former roommate Scott Glickman started the Century for the Cure (CFTC) bike ride to benefit the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ). This was Scott's way of giving back to an institution that treated him and saved his life after being diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma in 1997.
This will my fourth year riding after years of volunteering, and after riding 40-60 miles in the past, will now ride the full 100 mile route. I'll be riding to honor Scott's tireless efforts in raising cancer awareness and motivating 300+ riders and volunteers annually. I'll be riding inspired by the courage of my mom Joan, a breast cancer survivor, and dad Bob, who is currently battling lung cancer. And I'll be riding to continue to raise funds for this important cause that impacts us all.

Over the past decade, Century for the Cure has raised $2M for cutting edge research at the Cancer Institute. 100% of the funds raised goes directly to cancer research, and with your support, CINJ will continue to do remarkable things in the lab, develop new therapies, and continue to save lives.
Thank you for supporting Century for the Cure and the Cancer Institute of New Jersey!
