Indians team, including owner Paul Dolan, raise money in Clinic’s second annual VeloSano charity bike ride

Cleveland, OH—The Cleveland Indians are proud to announce that the club’s VeloSano team has raised over $135,000 for cancer research.

The Indians partnered once again with Cleveland Clinic to support VeloSano, an annual charity bike ride event. The Indians fielded a team of nearly 60 riders, including Indians Chairman and CEO Paul Dolan and other members of the Indians front office.

In June, the Indians hosted a charity celebrity bartending event at The Corner that raised over $5,000 for the event; Terry Francona, Jason Kipnis, Francisco Lindor, Trevor Bauer and more appeared at the event.

VeloSano, Latin for “swift cure,” is a major community fundraising initiative, where 100% of dollars raised by VeloSano participants directly benefits cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. At its core, it’s a cycling event where riders commit to raise a pre-determined dollar amount by requesting support from personal contacts.
