THE BREAKTHROUGH BIKE CHALLENGE
Breakthrough Bike Challenge is a tax-exempt charitable organization, founded in 2014 by Chris Hall, Randy Bown Jeff Krieger, Jennifer Pinto-Martin and Ernie Tracy. Each year the Breakthrough Bike Challenge hosts an annual bike ride. With the help of participants, donors and volunteers, this fun and inspirational ride raises funds that support cancer research at Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center. The organization presents two different honorary awards to deserving participants, the Joan Markman Volunteer Leadership Award and the Muscoe Martin Fundraising Leadership Award. Both awards are in memory of beloved friends of the Breakthrough Bike Challenge, Joan Markman and Muscoe Martin.
