The Fox Chase Cancer Center has been named as the official charity of the Pennsylvania Triple Crown of Cycling, a three event pro cycling series anchored by the 22nd annual Philadelphia International Cycling Championship. Over the next five years, Fox Chase will benefit from fundraising events associated with the three races including the Lancaster Classic on June 4, the Reading Classic on June 8 and the Philadelphia International Cycling Championship on June 11.
The 2006 charity event will be "Pedal for Prevention", a non-competitive bike ride open to people of all ages. The ride will take place on the championship race course in Philadelphia beginning at 7:00 a.m., on Sunday, June 11. The course will be cleared of participants before the pros hit the streets for the Philadelphia International Cycling Championship, starting at 9:00 a.m. Online registration for the ride will begin next week.
