Join us for the 2021 VIRTUAL Million Dollar Bike Ride!
We're excited that the Million Dollar Bike Ride will once again be a VIRTUAL event!

Last year we had 10 teams across the globe who participated. With the matching funds from the Orphan Disease Center, LGDA/LMI Riders awarded almost $82,000 to fund research to study the effects of combined therapy using Sirolimus and Zometa.

Since 2015 and with the help of our supporters, this annual event has raised over $700,000 and funded 11 research projects directly related to GLA, GSD, KLA, and CCLA!

Once again, UPenn Orphan Disease Center will be matching donations up to $30,000 with 100% of the funds raised going towards research for GLA / lymphangiomatosis, GSD, KLA, and CCLA.

For Active Participants:
Decide on a distance to ride, walk or run and ask others to make a donation to support your efforts.
  • Choose your distance of 13, 34 or 72 miles - with social distancing and limited time outside, the distances can now be completed over a period of time (finish date 12th June).
  • Whether you are on your stationary bike/treadmill or on the road - become part of Team LGDA / LMI. Join others by downloading a distance tracker and posting your progress through social media channels using #TeamLGDA/LMI and #PennMedMDBR2020
  • Self Isolating and can't go out - this can be done on a stationary bike or treadmill. Cover the miles from the comfort of your own home. Use a distance tracker and share your progress!
  • Share your fundraising page or the Team LGDA donation page with friends and family and ask them for a small donation to encourage you to complete your challenge and to help us reach our $40,000 target.
