It's Obliteride Weekend!


Two members of the Pink Polka Dots Guild are riding to cure pediatric brain cancer! As long time fundraisers for the Olson lab at the Fred Hutch, we are extremely dedicated to this cause. What better way to fight cancer than a bike ride? 

We invite your participation through donating to our team!

We work in loving memory of our friend Sydney, who passed away from brain cancer at the age of 11. Her positive spirit inspires us to keep working towards a cure. 


It's not too late to support riders Kelsey Josund and Sierra Alef, just go to the Obliteride page and search "Pink Polka Dots."
