Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge Ride & Walk on Saturday

The Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge Ride and Walk will be held on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at the Simsbury Performing Arts Center, 22 Iron Horse Blvd. in Simsbury.

The annual event brings together thousands of riders, walkers, and spectators to raise money for the University of Connecticut Health Center’s Carol and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center, “Coaches vs. Cancer” and the fight against this deadly disease. 

There will be a 5K walk as well as rides of varying lengths -- 10, 25, 50 and 75 miles -- and varying skill levels.  At the conclusion of the ride and walk, there will be great food and live music for all participants and their guests.

Also, to help fight skin cancer, UConn Health Center Dermatologists are offering free skin cancer screenings during and after the Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge Ride and Walk.  Coach Calhoun himself has had multiple bouts with skin cancer and is encouraging everyone to get checked.

To find out more or to register, visit: or call 860-674-1500.  Advanced registration is suggested for the ride and walk, though walk-ups are welcome.
