Cadence Sports & Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum Release 2019 Million Dollar Club List of America’s Top Cycling Fundraising Events

March 3, 2020

Austin, TX – At least 48 cause-related cycling rides raised more than $1 million each in 2019, according to the annual study released by Cadence Sports & the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum.

This study goes deep into exploring individual events to disclose which rides were members of the “Million Dollar Club” which is topped by the Pan-Mass Challenge, a single weekend event that raised a jaw-dropping $63 million in 2019.

“The cause-related cycling space continues to flourish as more folks hop on a bike and become engaged in an impactful mission – and not necessarily in that order. As a leader in the cause endurance production space, our team takes great joy in publishing this study each year,” said Gary Metcalf, Co-Founder and President of Cadence Sports.

“The Million Dollar Club list is a tremendous addition to our knowledge of the cycling fundraising space,” said David Hessekiel, president of the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum, which releases lists of the top thirty US and Canada-based peer-to-peer fundraising programs during the first quarter of each year.
