Million Dollar Bike Ride

The Million Dollar Bike Ride brings 550+ cyclists and volunteers to Penn’s campus to ride either 13, 34, or 72 miles starting in the city, and ranging across the Greater Philadelphia region.  In five years, the MDBR’s 27+ teams have funded over $8 million for rare disease research in partnership with the ODC. We ensure that 100% of the funds raised goes towards these pilot grants, with no overhead taken out.
