New to the 2023 Ride for Roswell!
On June 24, the Ride Community is coming together again for a common mission: to end cancer.
The 2023 Ride is the same incredible event, but with new opportunities and enhancements for you to enjoy.
Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect.
The return of the Canada Route.
The Canada Route is back for the first time since 2019! Riders will travel 44 miles along the Niagara Parkway with special lanes across both the Peace Bridge and the Rainbow International Bridge. Enjoy a river view from start to finish. For this experience, there is a $750 fundraising minimum.
This was one of the community’s favorite routes prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and we are so excited to open it up to riders again.

We're moving across campus at UB!
Ride for Roswell has grown tremendously over the years, thanks to dedicated riders and community partners! To ensure the Ride experience is as positive and meaningful as possible, we are moving into a larger space on the University at Buffalo’s North Campus, and we will be utilizing the area at the intersection of White Road and Hamilton Road. The new layout will allow more room for participants to enjoy their Ride while taking in the experiences throughout the day.
You’ll see some changes to parking, check-in, the start and finish lines and Celebration of Hope. The new space on campus means a better start and finish line experience, team tent village close to the action, new vendors and interactive activities with plenty of room for expansion in years to come.
Signage and guest services will help you navigate campus upon arrival.
Earn new fundraising rewards!
For the 2023 Ride for Roswell, we’re introducing new rewards for your fundraising milestones!

Kickstart your fundraising with a self-donation and we’ll send you an exclusive post-it note pack.
Elevation of EMC.
Extra Mile Club (EMC) members go above and beyond to bring hope to patients at Roswell Park. Last year, EMC members accounted for 75% of total funds raised. That’s amazing!
We are excited to announce we have elevated the fundraising minimum for EMC to $1,500. EMC Silver will remain at $2,500. This change will lead to an even greater impact in fueling life-changing cancer research and patient care programs. We know that the Ride Community is up for the challenge and we’re here to help!
Riders who raise more than $2,500 will have access to the EMC Silver tent, along with one guest.

Every year we aim to enhance the rider experience with new rewards and experiences, and we can’t wait for you to be a part of the Ride this season!
