Cycling for a Cure

Cell Therapy, hope for tomorrow

 Our 6th edition!

An even more inclusive and accessible event

Building on the success of its 5th edition, our cycling event has been redesigned with a new name and location. Under the name of Cycling for a Cure, the event will be held on Saturday, September 30th, 2017 at the Gilles-Villeneuve circuit site at Parc Jean-Drapeau, in Montreal.

Another new aspect: the event will include several diverse speed, distance, and relay races, as well as an event for young cyclists. The event promises to be festive and uplifting all the while helping with cellular therapy!
