The Million Dollar Bike Ride was held on May 7, 2016 and is the only fundraiser held in the United States that matches donations dollar for dollar for “Orphan” diseases like Niemann-Pick type C.
Team NPC is a group of dedicated families and friends who all know or love someone affected by Niemann-Pick type C disease. Along with the researchers studying the disease, we are raising funds for research that will lead to a treatment or cure for this devastating and fatal neurodegenerative disease. Our team participated again in 2016 in the Million Dollar Bike Ride and has funded four research projects since 2014 and 2015 successfully raising $50,000 each year. These funds have been matched by the University of Pennsylvania to $100,000 each year in 2014 and 2015. Totals for 2016 will be posted as soon as they are available.
