Why we ride

Cancer survivor and marketing executive Tom Lennox launched Chainbreaker in Minnesota to accelerate the discoveries at the Masonic Cancer Center as we deliver leading edge treatment.

He was the founding lead for a successful event in Columbus, Ohio, that has raised more than $130 million in 8 years for its cancer center – and he’s brought that successful model to Minnesota to do the same.
