Cancer and its treatment can have long-lasting or late-onset effects on a person’s body. The 24 Hours in the Canyon Cancer Survivorship Center is dedicated to helping cancer survivors live their lives to the fullest after treatment. While we anticipate that most cancer survivors will lead healthy, active lives, some may develop problems as a result of their past diagnosis and therapy.
to all the 24 Hours in the Canyon riders and donors who are helping to make this Program possible. For more information, please call (806) 331-2400.
the only simultaneous 24-hour road & mountain bike event in the country
24 Hours in the Canyon is the only simultaneous 24-hour road and mountain bike event in the country. It takes place each year the weekend after Memorial Day in the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon.
Each year, more than 2,100 people in the Amarillo area are diagnosed with cancer. Many of these are our friends, neighbors and family members, who will benefit from the 24 Hours in the Canyon Cancer Survivorship Center. Our fundraising will help fund this new program that will be a vital part in caring for patients during and after their cancer experience.
The Survivorship Program is provided free of charge to all cancer survivors both during and after their treatment regardless of where treatment is received. Coming to the Survivorship Center does not require a physician’s referral.
Why we ride
Cancer survivors in the program are monitored for signs of cancer recurrence. The program focuses on lessening any long-term and late effects associated with cancer and its treatment. The Harrington Cancer and Health Foundation and The Survivorship Center are dedicated to helping cancer survivors live their lives to the fullest after treatment.
That’s why we ride – to help those we love win their battle against cancer.
