Obliteride is an annual fundraising bike ride held over a weekend where every rider-raised dollar goes toward lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch. 2017 marks the fifth anniversary of the ride that has become a community tradition in the Pacific Northwest that has raised over $9.2 million to date.

Stage IV Melanoma survivor and Obliteride participant David Dunnington and Dr. Kristin Anderson, an immunotherapy researcher at Fred Hutch joined New Day Northwest to talk about the event.

Rider's have the option to bike the 25-mile, 50-mile, 100-mile or two-day route. Every dollar raised by a rider goes towards lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutch. You don't have to ride in order to participate, you can also volunteer your time and energy, sign up to fundraise, or cheer on riders at the finish line.
