Posted in Announcements on September 1, 2021
Melissa G. McDavitt, a partner in our firm’s West Palm Beach office, will once again be taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer. This will be Melissa’s fourth year participating in the challenge. Throughout the entire month of September, participants set personal mileage and fundraising goals and ask their friends, family and colleagues to sponsor them.
Great Cycle Challenge USA began in 2015 to fight children's cancer. Every year, more than 15,000 American children are diagnosed with the disease and it's the leading cause of death by illness in children. In six years, the Great Cycle Challenge USA community of 350,000 riders from all 50 states have pedaled more than 24.8 million miles while raising more than $39 million in support of research to develop better treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer. This year, the event hopes to raise $10 million.
