Statement of Purpose
The purpose for the RCDCU Bike-a-Thon is to raise money to help fight prostate cancer by increasing awareness and focusing on the importance of early detection, screening, nutrition and education.
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 “Mission and Goal” is to increase awareness, fighting cancer through early detection, screening, education and nutrition.
RCDCU Bike-a-Thon was previously part of the Renaissance Community Development Credit Union community outreach.
To better serve our goal and our mission the Bike-a-Thon committee voted unanimously to form a nonprofit organization. For additional information about RCDCU visit our website at www.rcdcu.org
