Mayor's Cup Ride Raises $4,000 for CVPH Travel Fund

PLATTSBURGH, NY (07/13/2018) -- The Foundation of CVPH raised $4,000 for the CVPH Travel Fund thanks to participating cyclists and supporters of the 15th Annual Mayor’s Cup Bike Ride held Sunday, July 8. 

The annual ride included two ride options – a 20 and a 50 mile route.  In celebration of the event’s 15th year, it returned to Whiteface Mountain, the location of the first ride. Both routes finished at CVPH where cyclists and their families could enjoy a barbeque lunch.
