UC Health Joins Ride Cincinnati in effort to Paint the Town Orange on June 2-3

Community Partners will Light Buildings Orange in Honor of National Cancer Survivors Day

UC Health joins the Great American Tower, the Duke Energy Center CINCINNATI sign and JACK Casino in an effort to paint the town orange this weekend to honor the brave Cincinnatians who have tackled cancer head-on, and in honor of National Cancer Survivors day, this Sunday, June 3rd.

Join organizations across the city are saluting them with a display of orange- the official color of Ride Cincinnati.

One in three women and one in two men in Greater Cincinnati will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Such high prevalence means that nearly everyone in the region will be affected by this disease, a stark reminder of the urgent need for life-saving cancer research and top-notch cancer care.

Through its outreach efforts, Ride Cincinnati, the annual cycling event supporting the UC Health Barrett Cancer Center, is calling on both cyclists and non-cyclists to unite and help develop the region into a leader in world-class cancer research, education and care.

This is part of a larger, community-wide effort to bring the coveted and much-needed National Cancer Institute designation to Cincinnati.
