About our Bike Ride
for Cancer

Mission and History

The CT Challenge bike ride is the main source of funding for the nonprofit organization Mission.

Mission is dedicated to helping the 16.9 million cancer survivors in Connecticut and throughout the U.S. rebuild, improve and prolong their lives through exercise, nutrition, mind-body health and community-building support programs. Want more on why this is such a massively important movement and how it came to be?


The programs funded by the CT Challenge Ride are about hope, inspiration and triumph.

They are about reasserting yourself in your life after cancer. They are about setting goals and achieving them. They are about community and finding strength in a group collectively aimed at living well. They are about lifting yourself up to new levels of peace, confidence and energy …enabling all affected by cancer reclaim their life and move forward.

These programs, which live under the name Mission, are an insistence to thrive.
