Calhoun Ride will feature skin cancer screenings

To help fight skin cancer, dermatologists from the UConn Health Center will be offering free skin cancer screenings during and after the Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge Ride and Walk. Coach Calhoun himself has had multiple bouts with skin cancer and is encouraging everyone to get checked.

The annual ride/walk is June 9 in Simsbury at the Performing Arts Center near the center of town.

The proceeds from the ride benefit the UConn Health Center’s Cancer Center as well as Coaches vs. Cancer.

There is a 5K walk as well as 10-, 25-, 50- and 75-mile rides.

To find out more or to register, visit: or call 860-674-1500. Advanced registration is suggested for the ride and walk, though walk-ups are welcome.
