AWARDS AND KUDOS
Buffalo Bicycle Classic a Success
This year's Buffalo Bicycle Classic raised more than $170,000, surpassing their goal of $150,000. Volunteer coordinator Valerie McNally said riders enjoyed a perfect, hot and sunny day and thanks all the wonderful volunteers and participants in the University community.
This year's crowd for the Oct. 2 Race for the Cure was a record-breaking one and so was the "CU 4 the Cure" team, which had 82 members and won as the largest team in the Colleges and Universities category. The team raised $4,500 - 450% over their goal. Many members of the team met on Sunday morning and walked in the 62,000+ crowd. CU balloons drew many alumni and CU friends over to walk with the group.
