Since 2007, we’ve been hittin’ the road each year to Ride and rally to raise awareness for breast cancer! Things may look a little different this year, but we’re still revved up for our VIRTUAL Ride! LEARN MORE

About Us

Ride for the Ribbon raises much-needed funds for Eastern NC breast cancer patients, survivors and their families. From screenings and early detection programs, to treatment assistance and patient pick-me-ups, all proceeds raised are applied locally. 

Our Mission: To rally the community in support of our neighbors who are fighting and surviving breast cancer!

Ride for the Ribbon has gone VIRTUAL for 2020!! Ride 100 miles anywhere, anytime October 1-31.

Ride for the Ribbon has grown in scope, attendance and monies raised each year. This year’s virtual event has the potential to include more participants than ever. Let’s Ride!

2020 Virtual Ride for the Ribbon

This year’s ride will be virtual to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and riders. We’re excited to present the 2020 event, although we’ll miss being together in person for the Ride, Car Show and Pullin’ for Pink.

Instead of riding together, participants may choose one or more days in October to log their miles. So mark your calendar, spread the word, and hit the road!


Choose one or more days in October to log at least 100 miles. A registration fee of $30 includes a tee shirt and pink-ribbon gaiter. Pre-register by September 30 to receive the 2020 lapel pin. See our Facebook page for more information and your chance to win a photo contest – and a grand prize!

“Vidant Health Foundation is grateful to Ride for the Ribbon for the awareness and support it brings to cancer care in eastern North Carolina. The funds raised go directly to support cancer patients in our community who are most in need. In the past these funds have helped with lodging, food, transportation and prescriptions, as well as pre-screenings/early detection programs, diagnostic procedures such as mammograms, and survivorship programs.”

“It is an honor being able to volunteer for Ride for the Ribbon. Being a cancer survivor myself, I enjoy being around everyone. It’s an amazing experience to see all the bikers that come out for this great cause.”

Ride for the Ribbon is a major supporter of women in our area diagnosed with breast cancer. Cancer Services of Eastern North Carolina has been one of the lucky beneficiaries of this event, which has enabled us to fund wigs, provide breast cancer screenings for the uninsured, and provide financial assistance to those in treatment for breast cancer. We are so very grateful for our partnership!”

“I ride to raise support and awareness for all the women and men who are given the dreaded “C” diagnosis.  Not only am I an employee at our Breast Imaging Center, I am a supporter for anyone facing breast cancer. This event is a way to give back monetarily to everyone that is fighting the battle against beast cancer, and support them by show of solidarity. Every day is a day closer to a cure and by me riding, I am advocating and supporting that. I ride because I believe we can beat this.”
