September 8, 2012 marks the 8th annual Century for the Cure charity cycling event to benefit the Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ) Foundation. This event, held in Warren Township every year, encourages cycling enthusiasts, volunteers, and other participants come together with the goal of eliminating cancer.
The bicycle riding event starts and ends at Camp Riverbend in Warren Township and includes different courses which take you along central New Jersey’s scenic back roads. The event offers 40-mile, 80-mile, and 100-mile cycling options. There is even a “virtual rider” for those who may not ride but would like to fundraise and support the event. Registration is available online at www.centuryforthecure.com.
The Century for the Cure event was started by a Warren Township resident who was successfully treated at CINJ for stage four non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma almost 15 years ago. He hosted the event as a thank you to CINJ as well as to raise awareness and educate those in his community. CINJ has received $825,000 since the charity event began. A portion of the proceeds from the event will specifically support the Hematologic malignancies/Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Program at CINJ.
Timely diagnosis and effective treatment of cancers are essential to a patient’s chances of survival. If a healthcare professional does not comport with appropriate standards of medical care, he or she can jeopardize the patient’s prognosis.
