Million Dollar Bike Ride

By Lisa Calabrese


If you look at the photos and case studies throughout the SmithSolve office, it’s easy to see our passion for helping people living with rare diseases. It’s also hard to miss the bright blue bike hanging on the wall our founder, Chris Smith, rides to work.

This year, Chris will bring these two passions together by participating in the 2nd Annual Million Dollar Bike Ride on Saturday, May 9th, 2015 in Philadelphia to support rare disease research. Chris will be riding with RASoapathies Network Riders to benefit Morgan, a fun-loving four-year-old living with Noonan Syndrome.

The University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Orphan Disease Research and Therapy organized the Million Dollar Bike Ride to increase awareness and raise funding for rare diseases. Last year, the event raised $1.4 million for rare disease research and expects to exceed this total.

We invite you to support this worthy cause by donating to “Miles for Morgan” here. SmithSolve will match all donations.
