2020 SWF Ride For Research


After much deliberation, UPENN has decided to not hold the Million Dollar Bike Ride on June 13th, but instead continue with a Virtual Ride!

At this time, SWF asks and encourages you to ride on your own (or safely socially-distanced from your cycling buddy), between now and June 13th, and document your progress!  You can even use a stationary bike at home! Cover your miles from the comfort of your home, and share your status and progress with us along the way!

This is a great way to beat cabin-fever and get some exercise and stay healthy! We hope you will participate leading up to and including June 13th to show your commitment and spirit!  This is also a GREAT way to increase awareness by fundraising during May - SWF's Month of Awareness as you ride for Rare Diseases with UPENN!

Our team is the SWF Webster Riding Warriors!

Whether you’re on your stationary bike or on the road, we will have special hashtags for sharing on social media, and ask that you post your personal or team cycling updates throughout the next several weeks up to and including June 13th.  We will be sharing, “liking” and re-posting your updates on our social media channels and website, as well.

The week following June 13th, we will share a list of all our participants, their distances and fundraising efforts!  Let's do this together across the country!

To fundraise as a virtual rider:  Go to the SWF Fundraising Page for this event, scroll down to the orange bar that says “Start Fundraising” and click.  You will then be able to set up your own fundraising page and then email it or share it on your personal social media pages.
