CLEVELAND -- Join the WKYC morning show and VeloSano in the fight against cancer by raising money for research at the Cleveland Clinic.

We kicked off our coverage for VeloSano3 live from Progressive Field. WKYC's John Anderson was there along with Paul Dolan, the Indians Chairman and CEO.

This morning John was at Avenue Fitness in Avon, a space donated for an indoor fundraiser for VeloSano.

It's all leading up to the big race, and every dollar raised by the VeloSano event goes toward the cancer research.

During our special coverage, we also introduced you to a cyclist who missed last year's ride because he was having surgery for a brain tumor. But this year, things are different for him. Surrounded by his co-workers and teammates, he will ride in this year's VeloSano.

The 2016 VeloSano weekend is July 29-31.
