WHAT PCFLV DOES FOR FAMILIES

The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley is dedicated to supporting quality-of-life for children diagnosed with cancer in the greater Lehigh Valley and their families, as well as long-term survivorship and bereavement programs. All of our programming and events are offered at no cost to these families. We believe that a pediatric cancer diagnosis affects the WHOLE family, and our mission reflects that belief. We also believe that a family's experience with childhood cancer does not end when treatment ends. Because of that, PCFLV follows a continuum of care model, hoping to be a friend to families from the date their child is diagnosed forever forward.

If you or someone you know has a child diagnosed with cancer, is a survivor of pediatric cancer, or has lost a child to cancer, we encourage you to reach out to us and allow us to be part of your journey through the programming, events, and support we offer!

FREE BAGELS AND COFFEE will be available before your ride.  There will be a cookout at the end of the rides behind the store.  Stick around for some food and beverage and talk to your fellow riders about what a great time you had.

The RIDES 

THERE IS NO EVENT PARKING IN FRONT OF THE STORE.   Parking will be at Independence Park at the end of Independence Drive behind the store (see map below).  Simply ride through the park, past our warehouse and you will find yourself at the back of our store.  All rides leave from the back of the store.

40-miler - this road ride will set out from the rear parking lot at 8am and follow the 40-4-40 route we did last year.  There will be about 2600' of elevation gain and we will be riding at a 13-16mph average speed. You can view and download the route here:
