3rd Annual Skyline Century and Double Century Ride

3rd Annual Skyline Century and Double Century Ride

Seven cyclists raised over $10K for Hopecam!  They biked 200 miles in two days from Front Royal, VA to Waynesboro, VA and back to help children with cancer.  The cyclists tackled 18,000 vertical feet of climbing on Skyline Drive at Shenandoah National Park.  Thank you to all the volunteers who supported the cyclists and to our Board Member Leigh Ann Schultz who helped organize the event!

Watch Len Forkas speak at TEDx Tysons

Hopecam founder Len Forkas was a speaker at the TEDx Tysons event on June 10th, 2017.  

When Len Forkas found out his 9-year old son had leukemia, he was scared and he wanted to help. He turned to endurance races to manage his stress and started a nonprofit to help connect kids with cancer Len takes his audience on a 3,000 mile, 11 day solo bike race with his 11 person all volunteer team sharing lessons such as the power of forgiveness and gratitude, knowing your limits and honoring roles.

Len Forkas, a Reston-based entrepreneur, will once again tackle the grueling ultra-cycling challenge, Race Across America (RAAM), to raise money for Hopecam, a nonprofit he founded to help children undergoing cancer treatment stay virtually connected to their classmates, friends and support networks.

“Last year Hopecam hit the milestone of connecting its 1,000th child. My goal between now and June is to raise $1 million dollars so that we can help 1,000 more kids,” Forkas said. “Racing RAAM helps me raise nationwide awareness about childhood cancer and the help Hopecam provides.”
