Bike Ride for Cancer

Ryan Parnell, Event Director Ryan Parnell, Event Director

It was all blue skies and sunshine for a ride in Palo Duro Canyon today.

Over 150 cyclists are hitting the courses, to help fight cancer, and they're riding for 24 hours!

The event is joining people from all over the panhandle to aid in cancer research, treatment and development.

"We're wanting to bring some light to the fact that a 1,000 residents are diagnosed with cancer every year and about half of those lose their life to cancer," says Ryan Parnell, Event Director.

There will also be a silent auction tonight.

The cycling event wraps up tomorrow at noon.
