16th Annual Virtual Courage Ride For Sarcoma Cancer Research University of Iowa Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center Sarcoma Research Program August 1-15, 2020
Courage Ride is an annual bike ride honoring the life of Seth Bailey, a courageous young man who died at age 25 from sarcoma cancer in 2003. His parents, Jackie and Tom Bailey partnered with Bicyclists of Iowa City (BIC) to create a ride that all levels of cyclists can enjoy! All proceeds from the Courage Ride go to the University of Iowa Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center Sarcoma Research Program. Since the first ride in 2005, Courage Ride has raised over $610,000 for sarcoma cancer research. To date, Courage Ride proceeds have seeded numerous sarcoma cancer research grants. Many of those grants have evolved into promising, larger scale research studies. This newfound momentum in the Sarcoma Research Program has created a lot of enthusiasm among researchers, investigators, doctors and cancer care providers at the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center. The results are leading to new advancements, new partnerships and attracting some of the best research talent in the nation. Patient lives are being made better as a result of these research studies and the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center is gaining worldwide recognition for its expertise in advancing sarcoma research.

In an effort to make sure we do what is best for everyone in the midst of this health crisis, we are postponing the Fly Fishing Film Tour/Big Grove event. We've worked with Big Grove to find a new date, Sunday, August 23rd.
We will re-open the ticket window at some point down the road and have contacted ticket holders.
We want to thank Big Grove Brewery for hosting this and working with us on the reschedule. We're hoping that by late August we'll all be in a place to enjoy some time together watching some awesome films and enjoying good food and beer at Big Grove.
Thank you and stay safe.
