COLUMBUS, Ohio — Pelotonia, a nonprofit organization that raises money for cancer research, is kicking off its 15th year with a new cycling event.

The organization raises funds to accelerate cancer research through its "Ride Weekend" and yearly cycling events. So far, Pelotonia has raised more than $258 million for the community’s One Goal to advance cancer research, according to a press release.

The newest cycling event, Gravel Day, will take place on Sept. 30 and follow the opening day ceremony on Aug. 4 and Ride Weekend, which is scheduled for Aug. 5 through 6. 

Gravel Day was created this year to offer riders a new way to participate in the Pelotonia event through gravel riding. The Gravel Day routes will showcase unpaved roads and picturesque landscapes, the release said.
