Dolphins Cycling Challenge Weekend Kicks Off with Friday Night Party

The fifth annual Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC) takes place February 7 and 8. A festive kickoff will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, February 6, at Sun Life Stadium. Food and beverages will be provided. Those who attend the kickoff will also be able to enjoy live music and take photos with Dolphins cheerleaders and their fellow DCC teammates.

This year’s DCC will also include a new 5K Run/Walk, which helps provide something for everyone interested in supporting lifesaving cancer research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Run/Walk will be held at Sun Life Stadium on Sunday, February 8, the second day of the two-day ride that spans three counties.

The University is once again honored to partner with the Miami Dolphins for the DCC, which has raised more than $7 million for groundbreaking research and patient care at Sylvester. These funds have helped build programs that have made a difference in the lives of countless cancer patients across South Florida.

While the registration deadline for cyclists ended on January 29, those wanting to participate in the 5K Run/Walk can register online through February 7 and onsite until 8 a.m. on February 8.

Both the DCC ride and the new 5K Run/Walk will finish at Sun Life Stadium.

Team UM Sylvester is led by Jerry Goodwin, M.D., Sylvester’s Chief Medical Officer.
