NASHVILLE — The V Foundation for Cancer Research’s Victory Ride to Cure Cancer presented by Braswell Family Farms has announced that the charity cycling event, previously scheduled for May and postponed to September, will shift to a more personal experience throughout the month of August in order to adhere to state COVID-19 guidelines.

The reimagined event kicked off July 30 with virtual opening ceremonies encouraging participants to ride any distance, any time and any place during August, which provides riders a chance to participate safely.

“We love the idea of reimagining this event,” said Trey Braswell, president of Braswell Family Farms. “It provides a great opportunity for people around the country to engage their friends and family in a fun and healthy activity together while making an impact on the battle with cancer!”

Throughout the month of August, Braswell Family Farms is donating $50 to the V Foundation for each new registration, up to $10,000.

Braswell Family Farms is encouraging employees to get out on the road with friends, family members and neighbors to participate in their own Victory Rides. Registrants will receive coupons for Braswell Family Farms eggs and a chance to win free eggs for a year.

For more information or to register for the ride, visit www.thevictoryride.org. Follow the Victory Ride on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @TheVictoryRide and through #MyVictory. For more information on the V Foundation for Cancer Research or to make a donation, visit www.v.org.
