Cancer in isolation is unthinkable, with family and friends it is bearable and with a community, you believe it is something you can beat.

The Granite State Quest last year raised more than $100,000 to support the fight against pediatric cancer

The mission of the Granite State Quest is to raise funds to conquer childhood cancer.

Partnering with Massachusetts General Hospital, the funds raised by The Granite State Quest will be specifically directed towards pediatric cancer research conducted by the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Unit at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. The MGHfC team has world-renowned experience in treating leukemia, lymphomas and brain tumors.

Over the past twelve years, dedicated participants of the GSQ have raised more than $1.3 million dollars. In 2015 alone, the event raised nearly $100,000. Thanks to generous in-kind donations from many businesses, 100% of the funds raised by the riders goes directly to pediatric cancer research and patient care at MGHfC.

Volunteers make the event happen

You don't have to ride to make a difference.

The success of the Granite State Quest depends heavily on our volunteers. The GSQ has numerous opportunities for you to participate, including registration, food and beverage service, mechanical support, medical support, route crew and after event celebration.

As the 2016 event nears, we will post a sign-up form so you can help make the day a success.
