for one great cause
LOWVELO rallies everyone together for one great cause — raising money for innovative and lifesaving cancer research at the state’s only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center: MUSC Hollings Cancer Center in Charleston. LOWVELO connects a dedicated group of riders, volunteers, virtual participants, sponsors and staff members who are driven by compassion and a determination to end cancer.
Join the fun on November 4
LOWVELO brings communities and organizations together from throughout South Carolina and beyond on November 4, 2023. In the process, we’re creating amazing memories while forging lasting friendships and partnerships.
It’s also a celebration, as we honor and celebrate our cancer survivors while supporting our researchers to find the cures for tomorrow’s patients.
LOWVELO is for everyone
LOWVELO offers participants a choice of five cycling routes to experience beautiful Lowcountry landscapes. We also have the virtual LOWVELO Home Team option for those who can’t join us in person or who prefer to cycle, walk, or run on their own.
We’ll give you inspiration along the way to train and create a healthier lifestyle — yet another way to fulfill our mission of cancer prevention and awareness. Want to participate in LOWVELO but not as a rider? Become a LOWVELO fundraiser or volunteer!
100% dedicated to cancer research
When you participate in LOWVELO, you know where your money goes. All of your hard work and sweat equity goes directly to support lifesaving cancer research happening at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center.
Despite an illness that landed him in the intensive care unit and stomach surgery that knocked him off his training routine as the ride approached, nothing was going to stop Michael Mansson from keeping a promise to his niece to ride 100 miles in LOWVELO. Watch the story of Parker’s courageous fight with sarcoma and Mansson’s determination to honor her memory.
Whether you are riding, donating, or volunteering, your support makes a big impact on lifesaving cancer research. Check out our blog, the Hollings News Center and our videos for the latest updates about our amazing researchers and participants.
Join the cause
Registration is $50 and counts towards your fundraising minimum. Participation includes a LOWVELO23 T-shirt, cycling jersey, swag bag, admission to the block party after the ride and the awards ceremony in early 2024.
Since LOWVELO first took hold in 2019, we’ve been amazed at how our community has come together to raise money for cancer research and make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer. Events like this really do make a difference in the fight against a disease that touches so many.
