BUFFALO, N.Y. — Today, the Empire State Ride announced that Port X Logistics has signed on as the official presenting sponsor of the 2022 weeklong event. From July 24 – 30, more than 250 cyclists from across the country arrive in New York City and embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Over seven days, ESR riders cycle more than 500 miles through some of the most scenic parts of New York State, camping each night and ending the event at Niagara Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world.
Each cyclist is committed to raising at least $3,500 for cutting-edge cancer research Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Port X Logistics presenting sponsorship will guarantee that even more groundbreaking cancer research can be funded at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
“Port X Logistics has four pillars of success – one of them is culture. The culture that Empire State Ride has created around their important mission to end cancer fits perfectly with our organization,” said Steve O’Neil, brand ambassador at Port X Logistics. “Cancer has touched so many lives in not just the Port X Logistics community but across the country and we are proud to be part of the lifesaving cancer research being funded by the Empire State Ride.”
“The impact on cancer research being made by the Empire State Ride is not possible without the support and confidence of partners like Port X Logistics,” said Terry Bourgeois, founder of the Empire State Ride. “Empire State Ride offers an opportunity to advance cancer research from the seat of a bike while taking on an amazing personal challenge, create lifelong bonds with other cyclists and see New York State in a unique way. We know with Port X Logistics in our corner, we will save more lives from cancer.”
Since its inaugural ride in 2014, Empire State Ride has raised more than $4.5 million for innovative cancer research in immunotherapy and personalized medicine.
