LCI Heme Team
The LCI Heme Team is much better at diagnosing and treating blood and bone marrow cancers than we are at riding bikes, but that doesn't mean we can't do both! We are composed of the nurses, doctors, advanced practice providers, LCI staff, patients and families who are dedicated to advancing the treatment of hematologic cancers. These include leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma among others. We appreciate you visiting our page!
Tour De Rhody
Tour De Rhody is a road and gravel cycling tour to support the Brown University Oncology Research Group (BrUOG). Rides range from around 15 miles to closer to 50 miles with most routes all on the road, but an option to explore dirt road (gravel) riding as well.
The ride supports BrUOG, which was created in 1994 to coordinate clinical cancer research for Brown’s affiliated hospitals and Alpert Medical School. BrUOG’s main mission is to improve cancer care through the implementation of innovative, multidisciplinary cancer clinical trials. BrUOG provides the infrastructure for the efficient development and implementation of these trials, which are created by Brown University faculty. Learn more about BrUOG here.
In its first year in 2019, Tour De Rhody raised over $18,000 to support cancer research in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts. With your support we can continue to grow!
Tour De Rhody - Sponsored by Lifespan Cancer Institute
Tour De Rhody began in 2019 as a road and gravel ride to support the Brown University Oncology Research Group (BrUOG) which coordinates clinical cancer research for Brown’s affiliated hospitals and Alpert Medical School faculty. With a short ride of around 15 miles, to longer 40-50 mile road or gravel loops, there are options for most to support this cause on supported routes through some of the most beautiful country in Rhode Island. 2020 will be bigger, even more fun, have porta-potties, and hopefully raise even more to support the great work of BrUOG.
