Please help me GET RID OF CANCER with a donation to help cancer research at Roswell Park!
Every dollar goes to help research the prevention, treatment and even help find a cure for cancer! They are doing so many awesome things to help get rid of this horrible disease! I was an intern at Roswell this past summer so I was able to see first hand how the money is used for important research.
So far I have raised more than $175,000 for Roswell over the past eight years and want to raise more this year. The first year, when I was 10, I didn't think that I would be able to raise the minimum $100 to be able to ride, and I raised over $4000! So I set a goal of $5000 for the next year and raised almost $7000!!! The next year, when my dad was sent to Afghanistan, I set a huge goal of $10,000 and I was able to raise more than $22,000!!! (and my dad borrowed a bike on his base in Afghanistan and rode at the same time and the same distance as me which was really cool). So the next year I beat that amount with more than $23,000, then over $29,000, and $30,000, $28,500, and now I want to raise $25,000 in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the Ride for Roswell, and to bring my lifetime total to more than $200,000!!!
I hope you can help!
Every year I ride in honor and in memory of so many people who have or had cancer. Some I ride for every year, and there are some new people every year. If you want to donate in honor of someone who has or had cancer, or in memory of someone who passed away from cancer, please let me know their names and I will carry them with me on the ride.
Thank you again!
PS - my team is forming again this year, Team SBU, in honor of those in the St. Bonaventure University family (which means really anyone because Bonnies are always welcoming!). We are riding in honor of Sr. Margaret Carney, OSF, who survived and was treated at Roswell, Jim Canty, who passed away recently from brain cancer, and all other Bonnies who have or had a battle with cancer. Please join us!
