Riding for rare disease research

Because no disease is too rare

The Million Dollar Bike Ride brings over 600 cyclists and volunteers to Penn’s campus to ride either 10, 32, or 70 miles starting in the city, and ranging across the Greater Philadelphia region. In 9 years, the MDBR’s 30+ teams have raised over $17 million to fund research grants on the diseases they represent. The ODC ensures that 100% of the funds raised goes towards pilot grants.
