The mission of The Long Island Bike Challenge is to raise funds to defeat skin cancer, melanoma and other serious forms of skin disease through a charity bike ride across Long Island held on the first Sunday in August. Proceeds from the event are donated to the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and the more than 1,000 physicians and researchers from the North Shore-LIJ Health System.
Today, over 100 million Americans -- 1/3 of the nation's population -- suffer from skin cancers, diseases and disorders that too often result in pain, disfigurement, disability and loss of life. Skin ailments affect people of all ages, races and economic backgrounds, and annually cost the United States $39 billion. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, with over 1 million new cases diagnosed each year; every hour a person dies from melanoma - skin cancer’s most dangerous form.
The ride is open to all cyclists willing to take-on the challenge of biking across Long Island and raising money from supporters.
