Amgen's Breakaway from Cancer Initiative Expands to Help Cancer Patients Access Broad Spectrum of Cancer Resources and Services
Date:1/22/2009

campaign during the Amgen Tour of California to help spread the word about working together to conquer cancer.

Breakaway from Cancer Charity Rides

To raise awareness and funds for people affected by cancer, Breakaway from Cancer charity bicycle rides will take place in San Francisco and Thousand Oaks, Calif. on Sunday, Feb. 8. The San Francisco ride will encompass a moderate 25-mile course, and Thousand Oaks will offer either a 25- or 50-mile course. Both events will feature finish line activities. In addition, participants in the San Francisco ride will have the opportunity to meet professional cyclist and Amgen Tour of California stage winner George Hincapie and Thousand Oaks cyclists will meet Team Columbia riders. Interested riders can register by visiting www.breakawayfromcancer.com.

"Since the inaugural Amgen Tour of California, I have been a part of the Breakaway from Cancer initiative," said Hincapie. "Nearly everyone is touched by cancer, including my family, and it's important for those affected to realize they don't have to face the illness alone. Just as in cycling where it takes a support team to help a rider break away from the pack, it takes a strong support network to help a person with cancer face the many hurdles throughout treatment."

Breakaway Miles During the Amgen Tour of California

In honor of cancer survivors everywhere with the spotlight on one special local survivor, Amgen created the Breakaway Mile -- an honorary one-mile bike ride that takes place at the finish line of the Amgen Tour of California, prior to the stage conclusion of the professional race. The Breakaway Mile will take place in four 2009 race host cities: Santa Rosa, Modesto, Paso Robles and Escondido. Each Breakaway Mile will feature a local cancer survivor and an Amgen scientist wh
