Welcome back, my dear supportive Ride for Roswell friends and family! And Hello to everyone new to my page!
For the second year in a row I am welcoming spring with the launch of my 2019 Ride for Roswell fundrising page. I am privileged to be a returning member of the KIDS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN! team, which last year raised a whopping $150,000 to help Roswell Park Cancer Instituer cure Pediatric Cancer. I'm determined to not only increase the distance of my ride this year (30 miles) but also to chase a new fundraising goal of $2500. In the past 7 years, through the generosity of our team leader, Joe Curatolo and the Curatolo family, $800,000 has been raised from our team alone. In the 23 years since the first Ride for Roswell, founded by my friend Mitch Flynn, the Ride for Roswell has raised more than $43 million dollars!
Last year I was overwhelmed by your generosity - I want to be overwhelmed again! Here is how your contributions will be matched and spent:
1. All money raised will promote Young Adult and Pediatric Programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
2. Affiliate riders will receive a $100 match for the first $500 raised and a second $100 match after they raise $1000.
This is an event that makes a difference! I sincerely hope you will consider donating again to this wonderful cause, one of Buffalo's premier fundraising events.
Stay tuned for updates! And thank you, with all of my heart,
