Extra Mile Club
Become Part of the Extra Mile Club
Riders who raise $1,000 or more become members of the Extra Mile Club (EMC). The funds generated from EMC members account for nearly 50% of the total each year. Anyone can do it! Become an EMC member this year and enjoy the many year-round benefits.
Pride in contributing to finding a cure for cancer and satisfaction of making a difference for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center motivates many of our EMC members. The hard work and loyalty also makes them eligible for a number of benefits during Ride Weekend and after The Ride.
Ride Weekend Benefits
EMC members may apply to be one of the 200-plus riders who participate in this unique, 12-mile, police-escorted processional ride from Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center to the UB North, where the group will enter the Celebration of Hope and be welcomed by 3,000 cheering attendees.
