Cytokinetics is a biopharmaceutical company developing potential medicines to improve the healthspan of people with devastating cardiovascular and neuromuscular diseases of impaired muscle function, including ALS. We have a strong, long-standing partnership with The ALS Association and The ALS Association Golden West Chapter, and have been 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
In 2019, Team Cyto is honoring Ryan and his family. Ryan's passing in early 2019 left a hole in our hearts. He made an impact on everyone he met, and he was an inspiration to all of us at Cytokinetics. He is greatly missed. We are proud to dedicate our ride to Ryan this year. #WeRideForRyan
