Erase the Trace
4th Annual Charity Cycling Event
October 5, 2024 on the Natchez Trace
115-Mile Ride    10-Mile Ride

Erase the Trace of Glioblastoma was established as CARES' charity cycling event in 2021 to fund research into the treatment of glioblastoma tumors.  

Even with the successful surgical removal of a glioblastoma tumor, a trace of cancer cells remains, waiting to attack again.  Our ride is named both for these trace margins and the Natchez Trace Parkway, the premier location of our event.  

Professional cyclist Johnny Burrell will ride to honor his late wife Ruth McGinnis, and the Founder of Erase the Trace Scott Williams, both of whom passed from cancer.

The Ride The Route Fund Cancer Research
