Chainbreaker: A Major Cancer Fundraising Event

Chainbreaker is a weekend experience of cycling, entertainment and volunteerism. More importantly, it’s a celebration of health and philanthropy because the core purpose is to fund cancer research for the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center.

Modeled after the wildly successful weekend cycling event Pelotonia, which has raised $130 million for Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, Chainbreaker aims to accomplish the same objective in Minnesota. 100% of every dollar raised goes directly to funding cancer research at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center.

Biking is highly encouraged among all Chainbreaker participants, but if you’re unable to make the date or choose not to ride, you can still donate  and/or be a volunteer.
