solo 2020

LOWVELO goes solo this year for a virtual experience!

COVID-19 won’t stop us from fighting back against cancer!

We hear you. We are ready to get out of the house, too! We can’t think of a better reason to get moving than raising money for cancer research.

That’s why we’ve revamped our event this year to get you moving for the same great cause – fighting cancer – in a way where you can safely participate. Cancer doesn’t take a break, and neither will we! Even better, there are more options this year as you can get involved by running, walking or cycling.

While we will sincerely miss seeing you in person, we look forward to seeing you share your journey as you log your miles!

100% to Cancer Research

While we won’t physically be together, one thing does still remain the same – 100% of every dollar we raise supports cancer research at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center.

LOWVELO rider & cancer survivor

I think I'm the luckiest guy on the planet. Here I am, diagnosed with cancer myself, and I get the best treatment from the best people in the world.

You Do You

Gear up your activity level

How it works

You pick the activity – cycling, walking or running – and the level of challenge. The fundraising levels are recommendations, and there is no official fundraising minimum. LOWVELO going virtual means there is no age limit! And, don’t worry, you won’t be on your own when it comes to fundraising. We have tons of resources and tips to ensure fundraising success.

Event registration opens July 15 and participants can begin logging their official mile counts on that day. Our mile goal is 31,710. That's 1 mile per estimated cancer diagnosis in South Carolina this year. November 14 we will all gather for a virtual celebration to recognize our achievements! Participants will have until December 14 to complete their fundraising.

Registration is free or $25 for a 2020 LOWVELO T-shirt.

Here are other ways to connect: Follow us on social media, share your story and tag us to recommend your favorite bike paths, trails and fundraising tips.

Timmy Samec

First Hollings LOWVELO fellow & cancer survivor

My main focus is to participate in LOWVELO to ride for others experiencing cancer. It’s also going to be in the back of my mind that I am riding for myself, but I think I primarily will ride for those who have it a lot worse with this disease.

Check out Timmy’s story and learn about other LOWVELO riders on our blog.
