KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Apr. 4, 2018) – For the fifth year in a row, cyclists have the opportunity to roll into the best post-ride party in Kansas City as Ride2Boulevardia takes place on Saturday, June 16.

The Ride2Boulevardia mission is to beat cancer on a bike and to promote a healthy Kansas City with more than 70 percent of donations, sponsorship and fundraising, as well as a significant portion of event proceeds, being donated to Ride2Boulevardia’s beneficiaries. The donations directly support local cancer patients and their families via Kanas City’s Cancer Action and Children’s Mercy Oncology department. If pedaling is not your thing, Ride2Boulevardia is seeking volunteer help at the start and finish lines as well as along the routes.
