This is my 13th year riding in The Ride for Roswell. I will be participating in honor of my husband John and my friend DIane, as well as in memory of my father and brother, along with a host of family and friends, some of whom have lost their battles with cancer, and others who continue to fight. You can make a difference by supporting me in The Ride For Roswell. Funds raised through The Ride support cutting-edge research and compassionate, innovative patient care programs at Roswell Park. Please consider making a donation today and remember, no donation is too small! All donations made in my name are matched at 50%. TOGETHER! WE CAN HELP FIND A CURE FOR CANCER!
This year I will begin my Ride in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, where I moved to at the end of June, 2018. My Ride will, most likely, be on the trails and take me to Minneapolis and St. Paul. The route is subject to change, depending on whether others from my townhouse community who will be riding have another route they prefer to ride, as they are more familiar with the area.
I am asking that, if possible, you continue to support this very worthwhile cause. And, thank you for your past support to my fundraising over the past years.
I rode my bike 20 miles yesterday (June 22, 2019). It was a glorious day in Minneapolis. The temperature at the start of my ride was about 65, with the sun shining, and not a cloud in the sky.
I rode along the trails just west of Minneapolis. During the course of my ride, I passed Cedar Lake and Shady Oak Lake. Unfortunately, the portion of the trail that I was going to take into Minneapolis is closed due to the construction of the Light Rail Transit.
The scenery was spectacular! I saw several monarch butterflies, blue jays, and a cardinal that flew so close that I could almost touch it! There was a pond filled with lilly pads.
I could not have asked for a better day for riding.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to my fundraising for The Ride for Roswell.
I have been advised that the total raised for The Ride for Roswell for 2019 was $5.5 million!
