Long Island Bike Challenge
BIKES BATTLE CANCER
The Long Island Bike Challenge (LIBC) conducts an annual charity bike ride that inspires dedicated cyclists to ride across Long Island with the goal being to raise funds to prevent and cure cancer, raising and gifting $400,000 since 2012, $65,000 in 2021. The LIBC directs 100% of all rider raised donations to support advanced medical research conducted at the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research which is the research arm for the Northwell Health System.
Who we are
The LIBC is comprised of a dedicated group of committed cyclists willing to endure both physical and psychological challenges of training for and completing a bike ride across Long Island, as well as, securing donations from their individual supporters. Additionally, the LIBC combines support from dedicated volunteers, corporate sponsors and individual contributors. All are essential to the LIBC goal and model: to attain maximum fundraising efficiency while increasing its annual gift. Our hope and aspiration this year is to provide Northwell Health System physicians and researchers with the necessary resources to discover prevention, treatment, and cures for cancer.
