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 that are 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 the cause and satisfaction of making a difference for Roswell Park Cancer Institute motivates many of our EMC members. This hard work and loyalty also makes them eligible for a number of benefits on Ride Weekend and after The Ride.
