About DCC

Launched in 2010, the Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC) is a two-day, tri-county cycling event which donates 100% of rider-raised funds to innovative cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Since 2010, DCC riders have raised almost $12 million dollars.

Through a fun, safe, and exceptional two-day bike event, we provide the experts at Sylvester 100% of rider-raised, unrestricted funding to develop novel advances in cancer research to offer hope and critical care for South Florida patients and their families.
