The Mountain team was proud to have been involved in the 2017 Dolphins Cancer Challenge this past weekend in Miami, FL. The annual DCC hosts a handful of events, including a variety of cycling routes and races, a 5k run/walk, golf tournament, and interactive exhibits for family fun. The goal of the DCC is to fight cancer and raise money for the financial support of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami. This amazing event donates 100% of participant-raised funds towards this cause. To learn more about the Dolphins Cancer Challenge’s mission and cause visit: (http://dolphinscancerchallenge.com/)
