Pan-Florida Challenge Cancer Ride at Paradise Coast Sports Complex
March 24, 2023 - March 25, 2023
Whether you're celebrating survival or honoring a loved one, the Pan-Florida Challenge Cancer Ride (PFC) welcomes cyclists of all ages and abilities to ride on March 25-26, 2023. Very early registration is now open, and you can choose from multiple routes in Naples – including through Paradise Coast Sports Complex – and Tampa while getting the lowest registration fees and fundraising goals available for the event.
Pan-Florida Challenge is a non-profit organization that provides nutritious meals to underprivileged and hungry children, as malnutrition has been shown to increase the risk of developing cancer. In addition, Pan-Florida Challenge partners with organizations, such as Moffitt Cancer Center, to fund cancer research and support for cancer patients of all ages and their families. Every dollar raised by the riders directly supports Pan-Florida Challenge's mission.
Very Early Registration ends on Nov. 30 and Early Registration runs through Dec. 15. Rides are designed for cyclists of all skill levels, with routes ranging from 10 to 125 miles. A fundraising minimum is required which is cut in half for new riders. Pan-Florida assists all participating cyclists with reaching and exceeding their fundraising goals.
Meet fellow cyclists, volunteers and sponsors at the PFC Kickoff Party on March 24, from 6 to 8:00 p.m., at the Paradise Coast Sports Complex. This will also be the start and end point of the March 25 ride in Naples. Ten, 30, 62, 100, and 125 mile routes are offered in addition to the PFC Junior, a quarter-mile lap on a sidewalk around the lake that is ideal for trikes and bikes with training wheels and scooters.
Cyclists who complete their route will receive a finisher medal. Those who register for the PFC Junior and the 10 and 30 mile routes will receive a t-shirt, and riders of 62 miles or more will receive a PFC cycling jersey. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided and all participants are welcome to celebrate after the ride with live DJ entertainment, giant Jenga, corn hole and other activities.
