LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Locals around Kentuckiana enjoyed the nice weather while supporting to beat cancer.

Bike to Beat Cancer was the goal of the cycling event to benefit the Norton Cancer Institute.

Participants could choose from 35, 65 or 100 mile courses and there was also a brand new 5-mile family ride this year.

An estimated 600 people helped raised thousands of dollars for Norton.

“I just love it. I’ve made so many friends along the way and have participated through the year. This event has really taken on a life of its own. People just love the work and love to participate in the Bike to Beat Cancer,” Norton Healthcare Foundation Executive Director Lynnie Meyer said.

Those who attended the event Saturday afternoon also had a chance to “Be the Match” and get their cheek swabbed to enter the National Bone Marrow Registry.
