123 LumpSum employees participated in the two-day Dolphins Cycling Challenge on November 2nd and 3rd in Miami Dade and Broward County. The event brought together over 2500 cyclists, their families and volunteers, including our own Paul Burns.
Since its inception, the Cycling challenge has collected about$4 million dollars for the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Sylvester’s mission is to fight cancer and help those who suffer from it and other serious illnesses, through research, education, prevention, and quality patient care. This community initiative is a collective effort between the Miami Dolphins Foundation and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
Here is what Paul Burns had to say about his experience:
“This Sunday, I participated in the Dolphins Cycling Challenge. In 2013, this organization has raised nearly 4 million dollars to benefit UM Sylvester and kids fighting cancer.The fight against cancer is a subject that I’m passionate about having had a minor scare a few years ago and losing two of my grandparents to the disease.”
“I am thankful to 123 LumpSum for their generous donation and to Andrew Savysky for inspiring me through his work with the Special Olympics.The ride was a fun way to support a worthy cause and I look forward to organizing a team next year to help raise even more money next year!”
Launched in 2010, the Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC) is a two-day tri-county charity cycling event. The DCC is dedicated to raising funds for lifesaving cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
