Launched in 2010, the Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC) is a two-day tri-county charity cycling event. The DCC is dedicated to raising funds for lifesaving cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Started in 2010 the Challenge organizers hope to equal last year’s whopping $2.2 million dollars raised.

So far the events combined have raised $3.8 million with $1.9 million for this year 2013 already. The event has over 2700 registered riders, who have a choice of 30 to 170 mile rides to participate in over the two days spread over the tri-county area. Set to raise over $6 million in 4 years the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center receives an admirable donation from Miami Dolphin fans and the Miami Dolphins.
