All cyclists, cycling enthusiasts, citizens, and those affected by cancer were encouraged to be a part of the ride to bring awareness to the terminal illness. The Caucus urged those aforementioned to join in the pledging of $50,000 toward national efforts to combat cancer. The beneficiary of the pledge was the Cancer Treatment Center of Dangriga. Their goal was in an effort to augment the capabilities of their ever increasing assessments and services.

The ride received the support of over 200 participants. Each participant had a registration fee of $25 to pay. While the fundraising target was $50,000, the Caucus received over $80,000. The Caucus initiative also received a donation from the Belize Electricity Limited. The $4000 donation was presented as a cheque to the Belize Cancer Society.
