Nothing is more true than last year’s t-shirt: “Riding together to end cancer”. That is exactly what we are doing again this year. So many people are somehow affected by cancer. Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center plays an important role in the research to finding cures for cancers. They are once again ranked in the top 3% of cancer centers in the USA.
This year I chose to ride the international route: To the Niagara Falls in Canada and back to Buffalo. That’s a 44 mile ride, partly along the Niagara River with, of course, a stop at the Falls. I am already looking forward to it.
Last year’s fundraising went very well, I raised over $ 3,100!!!! I set my new goal a bit higher and I am now aiming for $ 3,500. Will you help me to get there? That would be great; your donations are highly appreciated.
Last year was also my first ride with the Peloton, the day before the Ride itself. A very emotional 16-mile ride from Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center to the University at Buffalo north campus. It starts with a salute to all the patients currently in Roswell Park, passes Buffalo landmarks like Delaware Park and the Darwin Martin house and finishes at the Celebration of Hope at UB.
Please help me to raise money for Roswell Park.
I am riding in memory of friends I have lost to cancer: Myrna de Graaff, Sjaak Arts and Donna Frydrychowski.
I am also riding for Shelly Reisdorf, Hanneke Nicolaes, Ineke Muijtjens, Archie Glick and Miranda Engels. My thoughts are with them while they are fighting to beat cancer.
Can I count on your support? Thanks
