As the Miami Dolphins work to bring back past glory on the field, the Miami Dolphins Foundation is continuing its excellent efforts off the field.

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.”

The Dolphins Cycling Challenge is a tri-county charity cycling event founded by the Dolphins to increase cancer awareness, encourage healthy hobbies, and raise funds for UM’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, which has facilities in Miami, Kendall, and Deerfield Beach. In its second year, the DCC was an enormous success, attracting more than 800 riders and raising more than $1,070,000 for cancer research at Sylvester.

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.
