The third annual Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC), a two-day, 170-mile trans-Florida charity cycling event to benefit Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, is back! The event will take place on November 3 and 4.
“South Florida is a world-class community deserving of a world-class cancer center,” said Dolphins CEO Mike Dee. “We hope Sylvester can continue growing its footprint and positively impacting those in our community who face the challenges associated with this insidious disease.”

Michael Mandich, whose father and Dolphins great Jim “Mad Dog” Mandich was treated at Sylvester, has been a vocal supporter of the DCC since its inception and rode the full 170 miles last year, working with the DCC to unveil the “88 Mad Dog Lane Water Stop” in honor of his father.
The DCC offers various options for participants of different ages and abilities:

All adult riders will receive two (2) complimentary tickets to the Miami Dolphins game versus the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, November 25th. Riders who attend the game will be honored in a special on-field pre-game ceremony celebrating their fundraising efforts. There is a registration fee of $150 per rider and a fundraising goal ranging from $250 to $1200, depending on the ride selected. 100 percent of the rider-raised funds will go to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The DCC is actively seeking participants, corporate partners, and volunteers to assist the Miami Dolphins Special Teams volunteer corps. For more information, please visit www.RideDCC.com.
