NBC Connecticut is Proud to be connecting you to the Closer to Free Ride event, on Saturday, September 9.
The Closer to Free Ride is the primary fundraising and awareness event for Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven. This inspirational bicycle ride starts and ends at the historic Yale Bowl and features 10, 25, 62.5 and 100 mile routes.
All of the funds raised go directly to patient care and advanced research, including clinical trials, post-treatments and care plans for survivors, cancer genetics and prevention programs.
You don’t have to ride to enjoy the day. The Finish Line Festival has kids’ activities, food and entertainment. Donate to the cause, come down and be a part of it or visit one of the many cheering stations along the route.
