2016 Fundraising Total Announced

What a year this has been! And boy did we celebrate! Riders, sponsors, volunteers and donors gathered at Westland Distillery to celebrate all the amazing work the Obliteride community did this past year.

We heard from one of our riders who is a survivor. He used his story to inspire others to get behind Fred Hutch; he’s built a team of over 30 riders and was the 2016 top fundraising individual. Congrats Harvey and thank you for your dedication and support.

We also heard from Dr. Pete Nelson who explained that the dollars Obliteride raised are being put to use in his lab as they learn how genetics plays a role in detecting cancer.

Lastly, we released the incredible fundraising total – $2,400,000 – all of which goes to cancer research at Fred Hutch. A big, giant, orange THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Obliteride 2016. 

That’s a wrap everybody.
