Reflecting on Obliteride 2023

By: Lewis Team
Lewis' Patricia Aguilar took part in her 11th-straight Obliteride event. She is one of 66 people to have participated since season one.

With a steady rain falling and the days getting ever shorter, it’s hard to believe that Obliteride was held on a balmy weekend just four months ago. In addition to those on the Lewis & Friends team who took to their bikes, walked, ran, donated, or otherwise participated, 23 volunteers also helped make the day a success.

2023 proved to be a record-breaking year for Obliteride, with teams collectively raising more than $8 million for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center.

Since the first event 11 years ago, Lewis participants have raised nearly $1.2 million to help Fred Hutch accelerate leading-edge research and urgently needed advances in cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and cures.
