Bikers race to fight skin cancer in 7th annual MSU Gran Fondo

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Nearly 2,000 people are hopping bikes to raise awareness and funding for the annual MSU Gran Fondo.

In its seventh year, the MSU Gran Fondo is a cycling ride that raises money for skin cancer awareness, prevention, and research. The ride has a variety of routes at 12, 25, 40 or 80-miles.

Big names joining the ride this year include five-time Tour de France cyclist Christian Vande Velde, along with gold medalist and cancer survivor Kikkan Randall.

What makes this ride unique from other bike races is that it’s a “rolling party.” That means there are superfood stops along the route, a Finish Line Festival with gourmet food, craft brews, and music, as well as photographers taking photos on the course.

    The cure to skin cancer has already been discovered and it’s generally referred to as “Rick Simpson Oil.” Rick Simpson healed his own melanomas and has helped thousands of others do the same. Your doctor won’t tell you about it, you have to look it up and make it yourself.
