Above And Beyond the Fight Against Cancer

Above And Beyond the Fight Against Cancer

As the Pan Ohio Hope Ride Grows,
so does Team Cleveland Clinic

Partick Surdy joined the Cleveland Clinic in 2009. After less than two weeks with the clinic, he approached the Chair of the Cancer Institute and blindly asked for any and all support for the Pan Ohio Hope Ride.

Answering the call to action for riders, clinic staff went above and beyond expectations.
“The first year I just wanted to get people on the team,” remembers Surdy. “My goal was 10 riders and 30 signed up.”

Today, the Cleveland Clinic’s team growth mirrors that of the Hope Ride. In 2012, 66 Cleveland Clinic employees, patients, and friends participated in the four-day, 328 mile bike ride from Cleveland to Cincinnati. Overall, the Clinic team members cycled 18,600 combined miles and raised over $120,000.

“We try to make it a family atmosphere,” Surdy notes. “Everybody is riding because cancer has touched them. This is an opportunity to meet and build camaraderie.”

As each Hope Ride passes, the team continues to come back and takes a strong ownership in its role in the fight against cancer.

“I’ve gotten to meet a lot of really cool people both in and out of the clinic who are just great human beings,” said Surdy.

Surdy is committed to continuing his role with the Cleveland Clinic team, helping to lead the year-long effort. “Every year I am so touched,” Surdy proudly exclaims. “With the support of the clinic, our employees, and all our riders, we continue to pull more people in.”

“The efforts of team captain Pat Surdy and the 32 other clinic employees in completing this 4-day event are just extraordinary,” said former Derek Raghavan MD PhD, former Chair & Director of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute after the Clinic’s first year participating. “This is the realization of Pat’s dream and is a great tribute to his leadership, grit and determination. I’m really proud to have been associated with them and to have been able to support their activities
