Raise Funds, Get A Kit

You can sign up to raise funds for the cause. The first 15 persons to raise $500 or more will receive a specially designed Pink Pumpkin Pedal-Off jersey and shorts. You can contribute the $500 when you sign up for the ride, mail in a check, or turn in funds raised when you come to the ride.

Join A Team!

Five or more persons can form a team, and save $5 each on the ride. The designated Team Captain will pay $200 for the first five riders. The other four will get a team number and coupon code from the Team Captain to register at no additional cost. Additional team members will use the team number to get their $5 discount. All team members MUST register before the week of the ride! (Riders can sign up as individuals at the week-of-ride rate and still ride with their team.)

Who We Are

  • We are Power of 2, Inc.
  • We are community, collectively touched by the devastation of breast cancer.
  • We are supporters, standing behind the researchers who will eradicate treatment-resistant breast cancers.
  • We are partners, working tirelessly alongside the physicians who will redefine outcomes for those who suffer these insidious cancers.

Why It Matters

Because treatment-resistant breast cancers:

  • Account for more than 25% of all breast cancer deaths.
  • Do not respond to traditional therapies.
  • Are more likely to recur than other breast cancers.
  • Disproportionately affect premenopausal women, leaving young children without a mother.
  • Do not receive adequate funding from the National Institute of Health.

We can:

  • Support the University of Florida research team working right now to eradicate these cancers!
  • Put monies raised locally to work locally!
  • Involve the Gainesville community in stopping these insidious cancers!
  • Keep another young child from losing his/her mother!
  • Improve the outcome for patients with treatment-resistant breast cancer!
