Statement of Purpose
The purpose for the RCDCU Bike-a-Thon is to raise money to increase the awareness of Prostate Cancer highlighting the importance of early detection.
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death affecting 1 in 6 men, with African American men 60% more likely to develop prostate cancer compared to Caucasian men and nearly 2.5 times likely to die from this type of cancer.
Renaissance Cyclists Defeating Cancer United is committed to increasing the awareness of prostate cancer and the effect it has on men, their families and the community.
Renaissance Cyclists Defeating Cancer United, Inc. (RCDCU) is a nonprofit 501 (C) (3) Charitable Organization incorporated on November 13, 2015.
Our goal and mission is to increase awareness, and fighting cancer through early detection, screening and education.
RCDCU Bike-A-Thon was previously part of the Renaissance Community Development Credit Union. The bike-a-thon committee voted unanimously to form a nonprofit corporation and move the bike-a-thon out from under the Credit Union. For more information about RCDCU, visit our website at www.rcdcubike.com
