2015 Fireflies West Ride - SF to LA
October 23 to 28

Fireflies West Team

Help us find a cure!

The Fireflies West is an annual cycling event down the coast of California, from San Francisco to Los Angeles. In its eighth year, the Fireflies pride themselves on tearing up the road in benefit of leukemia research at City of Hope.

Fireflies West partnered with City of Hope in 2009 and has raised over $850,000 for leukemia research. City of Hope is one of the largest transplant centers in the country for the treatment of leukemia and has had some of the consistently best outcomes for the last five years. Designated a comprehensive cancer center by the National Cancer Institute, City of Hope is acknowledged as a leader in cancer research and treatment.

The Fireflies West will depart San Francisco on October 23 and arrive into Los Angeles on October 28.

It's six days and 550 miles of cycling down some of the most beautiful coastline in the world.
