Team Racin' for Rick was formed in 2011 in memory of Ricky Franz who battled Melanoma skin cancer for 5 years. Rick rode in the 2009 Ride for Roswell and was an Extra Mile Club member even while battling Stage 4 Cancer. Rick was a wonderful son, brother, husband and friend who fought a brave battle. We honor his memory by riding and raising funds to find a cure for all cancers.
In addition to Rick, our team members ride in memory of many family members and friends who have battled cancer. We ride in honor of our loved ones who are long term survivors and those who are currently in treatment. We are proud to say that we have several riders who have kicked cancers butt and who are an inspiration to others.
With one in two men and one in three women in America being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, most of us know someone who has been affected by this devastating disease. You can make a difference by supporting our team in The Ride For Roswell. Funds raised through The Ride support cutting-edge research and compassionate, innovative patient care programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Please consider supporting our team. Together, we can help find cancer cures and save lives.
Thank you for your support!
