The Georgia Cancer Center works daily to raise awareness of different types of cancer and to cure it quicker.
The cancer center brought the community together for the Paceline Project Race, a company tailored specifically to Augusta.
This was the first year for the partnership. Nearly 250 bikers participated in 20, 45, or 100 miles at their own pace.
Family members and organizers cheered on the bikers while they chimed bells. While they got their workout, they also helped cancer patients at the same time.
“People are joining together for the cause the more momentum it can build and just makes a ripple effect to spread the word,” Sarah Keel.
Donations will go towards cancer research and treatment.
The Paceline Project wants to expand in Georgia to reduce the burden of cancer.
