Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer 2016
Our Miles Make More Memories
September 7th - September 27th, 2016
It began with the desire to do more for patients. Since 2014, more than 130 employees of Bristol-Myers Squibb have participated in our annual Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer Ride, raising over $2.2 million to date in support of Stand Up To Cancer.
This past September, 80 members of the BMS Oncology team dedicated themselves to complete this demanding journey. Their goal: to raise over $1 million for cancer patients and cancer research. Bristol-Myers Squibb matched all donations dollar for dollar, up to $500,000, through October 10. Thanks to BMS and all of our donors for their generous support. Although the matching campaign is now closed, you can still donate to Stand Up To Cancer at su2c.org/donate.
For these riders, this cause could not be more personal.

WE RIDE FOR PATIENTS
To go the distance on this ride across America, our riders went through 5 months of intensive training. The 2016 Ride covered 2800 miles — with each team completing 450 — traveling all the way from the Oregon Coast to the New Jersey shore.
Many of our riders were new to cycling. Some are cancer survivors. Almost all have been touched by the devastating impact of cancer, and together they rode to make a difference for patients.
