HistoryInspired by the cancer diagnosis of his grandmother in 2011, Patrick Acker co-founded Cycling4aCure raising funds for cancer research and counseling by crossing the country on his bicycle. The journey took 46 days, covered 3,342.4 miles, and encountered 125-degree temperatures. Over $17,000 was raised on their first trip.
Who benefits?Donations will continue to benefit Cycling4aCure’s fiscal sponsor, Cindy’s Hope Chest, a cancer support network based out of Charlotte, NC specializing in counseling for individuals with cancer. Donations will also help the organization donate bikes to children’s cancer hospitals.

“In 2013, Cycling4aCure raised over $17,000 benefitting cancer research and patient support.”
Virginia Tech fraternity Alpha Tau Omega (ATO), Theta Delta chapter, has selected Cycling4aCure as their official philanthropy!
During the 2013-2015 school year, our team donated numerous bikes to kids with cancer, raised thousands for Cindy’s Hope Chest, and completed a 200-mile, 3-day cycling tour from Blacksburg, VA to Charlotte, VA and a 2nd trip to Roanoke, VA!
The first event of our partnership was a campaign called “20 days, 20 bikes.” This event resulted in the donation of 13 bicycles to kids with cancer in Charlotte, NC
With the upcoming “season of giving,” we hope to receive your support in this new campaign!
