A new effort in the fight against cancer will roll onto the streets of Lexington this summer.
Plans for "Roll For The Cure" were announced at the Urban County Council meeting Thursday night.
Bicyclists, of all skill levels, will ride on different routes around Lexington on Saturday, August 25.
You don't have to pay anything to ride in the event, but you have to raise at least $500.
The money will benefit the Lexington Cancer Foundation.
"The dollars we raise will go directly into the fight against cancer in the form of cancer specific education, cutting-edge research, and to fund personal care needs," Jon Woodall, of "Roll For The Cure," said.
