This annual fundraiser supports clinical researchers from diverse backgrounds by providing educational grants and tuition scholarships that result in new career opportunities and professional growth.
September 8-12, 2024
Green Mountain National Forest
This self-supported endurance challenge will be led by Sergio Armani, Scott Chatterton, Rick Fisher, and Dr. David Morin, ACRP advocates for diversity and inclusion in the clinical research workforce. The ride is a life-changing experience—the resilience they need to push through to the finish line comes from our mission and their dedication.
Whether you’re a casual road cyclist, at the top of your Peloton leaderboard, or haven’t been on two wheels since you were a kid, there are several ways you can support the ACRP Ride4DEI mission. With your support, we can reach new fundraising heights and exceed our goal of $100,000.
1. Make a One-Time or Recurring Donation
This is the simplest way to support education and professional development for early-career clinical researchers from underserved communities.
2. Start a Personal Fundraising Page
It only takes a minute to start raising funds for clinical research workforce diversity. As a fundraiser, you’ll have your own page where you can share updates with family and friends. They can make a donation in your name to support your efforts.
3. Create a Fundraising Team
Take your fundraising efforts to a higher level by establishing a team of fundraisers. Invite your friends, family, and co-workers to actively fundraise alongside you. It’s a great way to bring people together for an important cause.
4. Become a Corporate Sponsor
Companies that are committed to building a diverse, research-ready clinical research workforce can make an immediate, real-world impact through corporate sponsorship. Amplify your efforts by encouraging your employees to donate, create their own teams, and encourage a little friendly competition in your workplace to see who raises the most! Please contact the ACRP Ride4DEI Creator, Sergio Armani, for more details on the benefits of sponsorship.
We hope you’ll join our fourth cycling challenge to support workforce diversity. Since 2021, the ACRP Ride4DEI has raised $165,070 in donations from individuals and corporate sponsors.
100% of every dollar—including corporate donations—goes directly to fund educational grants and tuition scholarships. You can view the list of 2023 ACRP Ride4DEI individual and corporate supporters here.
