Over 300 cyclists bike through 12 Ohio counties to help raise awareness about cancer

Posted July 31

— Nearly 374 cyclists braved the 328-mile trek across ten Ohio counties to help raise awareness about cancer.

The American Cancer Society Pan Ohio Hope Ride brings cyclists together for a four-day scenic ride.

The bike ride started at Xavier University in Cincinnati on Thursday and ended at Sherwin-Williams Breen Technology Center.

Pan Ohio Hope raises money for the American Cancer Society programs like Hope Lodges, which provides no-cost housing to patients and their families traveling to a different area for treatment.

Cyclists could choose to ride for one day, two days or the whole four days.

This year's ride raised more than $741,000 from riders and individuals who helped support them.
