Riders For The Cure History

Riders for the Cure was founded in 2006 by Dr. Samuel Hassenbusch, M.D., Ph.D., and Patrick Browning, J.D., both employees and avid motorcycle riders. The original purpose of Riders for the Cure was to serve as a voice for employee motorcycle riders but it was quickly realized that based on the club membership more substantial goals could be advanced and achieved. Today Riders for the Cure boasts over 150 current employees representing physician, administrative, clinical, operational, and support constituencies. The club is also open to retirees, former employees, and non-employee cancer survivors.

Mission Statement

Riders for the Cure provides community awareness for different types of cancer and the various efforts to support research and education. As a group, we strive to promote communication and cooperation within the Texas Medical Center. We assist the MD Anderson Cancer Center in raising funds to be used toward the stated institutional goal of Making Cancer History®.

Vision Statement

Riders for the Cure will continue to provide support for future research and educational goals for The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. We will continue to represent the institution in a positive light as well as in the community.
