Denver man races for his own cure in Race for Research

DENVER - A Denver man who often cycles for his community is now racing for his own cure.

Ryan Harris has cycled more than 20,000 miles for all kinds of causes over the years, and he's raised more than $30,000 for countless charities.

Earlier this summer, Harris fell off a ladder while doing some construction work, and he and his bike took a break.

Harris got a diagnosis he never expected when he visited the doctor afterward: he has Hodgkin's lymphoma.

But he won't let that stop his rides, and to Harris, every mile matters a little more.

Harris is the honoree at this year's Race for Research at Wash Park.

The Cancer League of Colorado raises money to support research that's happening in Colorado.

The Race for Research starts at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 16. If you'd like to learn more or register sooner, go to http://race4research.com/
