It's that time again - Cheers to everyone and to 2021!!! The Ride for Roswell is around the corner! 9 years ago was my first year participating (volunteered 1 year). I've had a blast! I've completed a couple 30 milers through out the years and have even traveled the 44 miles through Canada... TWICE! This year and every year - I strive to raise money to kick cancers @$$!!
COVID19 Update: “Cancer doesn’t stay quarantined. Cancer doesn’t socially distance. Cancer doesn’t stop. So we will continue to ride to end cancer — no matter what. We're turning this year into the Summer of the Ride!”
This year our team will be riding on August 7th - 30 miles on the UB Route.
I understand the times are tough, but with your help and generosity I am positive that I will reach my overall goal of $1,000.00 & with a little extra push - I am determined to pass that amount before the day of my ride!
**Why we ride… Funds that are raised through the ride support the cutting-edge research and patient care programs that benefit the 31,000+ patients who turn to Roswell Park for hope. Donations are further used to improve the patient and family experience, support new clinical treatments and procedures and educate the next generation of cancer scientists and clinicians.
**I work at Roswell Park, I've dealt with patients first hand for 4 years, and then moved to the Laboratory Medicine Department for 3 years where I also dealt directly with patient care. This is my 2nd year as a part of the Clinical Research Department. Clinical Research is a vital part at Roswell Park - We strive every single day to help our current patients with their treatments, and learn new ways to help those in the future who battle this awful disease. Due to research we are able to find new ways to improve healthcare. I love what I do and I love to do anything to support those we provide care for every day.
This year I will again be riding in memory of my Grandfather, Jack Wright. In 1992 he lost his battle with Lung Cancer. I know that he would be so proud to see how many people come together to raise money to continue to develop new treatments to conquer this disease!
I am also riding in memory of my cousin, Mary Jo Clarke. She passed away in May of 2019 after a battle with Ovarian Cancer. She was so strong, and I want to use her strength to battle this disease for those fighting in both of their memories!
So, please join in the fight and donate to such an amazing cause!! Every single penny counts! Thank you SOOOOO MUCH!!
