Cytokinetics is a biopharmaceutical company focused on research and development of first-in-class muscle activators for people suffering from debilitating diseases that rob them of key muscle functions, including ALS. We have a strong, long-standing partnership with The ALS Association and The ALS Association Golden West Chapter, and have been in involved in many initiatives with both the national and local chapters.
In 2016, 37 Cytokinetics employees, family & friends rode a combined 1,500 miles to raise over $20,000 at the Napa Valley Ride to Defeat ALS.
In 2017, Team Cyto returned to the Napa Valley Ride with a team of 43 people, raising over $11,500. Team Cyto rode in honor of a true inspiration to all of us at the company: Ryan Farnsworth.
In 2018, Team Cyto again dedicated our ride to Ryan and his family. Our 24 team members rode a combined 700 miles and raised $12,500. #WeRideForRyan
Stay tuned for our 2019 fundraising goals and updates from the team.
