What is LOWVELO?
LOWVELO is an annual fundraising event that rallies the community for one cause – funding lifesaving cancer research. Our goal is to eradicate cancer by supporting research into new treatments and discoveries at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in South Carolina.
100% of every participant-raised dollar from this grassroots event goes directly to cancer research. Riders have the option of choosing one of four routes based on their desired distance – 10 miles, 23 miles, 57 miles, or 100 miles. We also have the virtual LOWVELO Home Team option for those who feel more comfortable logging miles on their own. In addition, we are excited to have stationary cycling classes in the LOWVELO lineup.
Participation is open to all fitness levels age 8 and up for the 10-mile ride and stationary cycling classes, age 14 and up for the 23- and 57-mile rides and age 16 and up for the 100-mile ride. Each rider commits to the cause by fundraising at least a minimum amount based on their chosen distance.
We can’t wait to see you back out on the road for a fun day of cycling, good food, and volunteerism this year! Keep an eye out for more details on routes.
