Road Cyclists Benefit Moab Residents
In September, road cyclists at the Moab Century Tour put purpose to their cycling and donated $3,010 to the cancer treatment room at the Moab Regional Hospital.
Thanks to Mavic Wheels, an additional $1,785 was also raised and given directly to Olivia Blackwelder's family, local residents of Moab.
Oliva Blackwelder, age 5, was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and is currently undergoing treatment at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. The Blackwelder’s travel (almost weekly) between Moab and Salt Lake City for treatment, a 4-hour drive one way.
If you would like to donate to Olivia’s family to help offset the transportation costs, you can do so at this link:

Thank You Riders!
A big thank you to all who participated in the 2019 Moab Century Tour! We were able to donate $10 for every registration received, and many cyclists chose to add additional donations to either their registration or at the event. Thank you for attending, caring, sharing, and cycling with us! We hope to see you at the 2020 Moab Century Tour!
