Million Dollar Bike Ride 2017

The CDCN has an upcoming event in Philadelphia, The Castleman Warriors' Ride to a Cure, which is a part of The Penn Medicine Orphan Disease Center's "Million Dollar Bike Ride” on Saturday, May 20th. The CDCN  is organizing a team of cyclists to help reach our goal of raising $20,000 for Castleman’s research, which will be generously matched dollar-for-dollar by Penn Medicine!!
