WKYC Studios' VeloSano Day of Giving: Here's how you can donate

100% of every dollar raised in VeloSano goes toward life-changing cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic.

CLEVELAND — This Thursday marks our first WKYC Studios VeloSano Day of Giving ahead of this Saturday's fundraising bike event. 

100% of every dollar raised in VeloSano goes toward life-changing cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic. And with so many ways to participate, like with in-person rides on September 11, and virtual participation, which is any activity you want to do at your own pace, anyone can join in.

Our Day of Giving kicks off live from Mall B in downtown Cleveland at 5 a.m. during 3News' GO! show and will continue into our coverage of the Thursday Night Football pre-game show, with the last opportunity to donate at approximately 7:45 p.m.

Here's how you can donate:

  • Text the word GIVE to 216-344-3300
  • Visit velosano.org/wkyc
  • Scan the QR code on screen 
  • Call 1-844-394-4438

Joe Cronauer will be our host throughout the Day of Giving with Sara Shookman reporting during What's New at 5 p.m. and What Matters Most at 6 p.m. Joe and Sara will be joined by people who, along with their families, have benefitted from the research being done at Cleveland Clinic. We’ll also talk with experts, researchers and everyday folks who will be riding in the actual event on Saturday for the personal reasons that they will share with us. 

Also, our “It’s About You” show Thursday will highlight the research, the researchers and the people who have benefitted from the great work being done at Cleveland Clinic.
