Like so many things this year, the Ride for Roswell (as it was planned) has been reimagined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was to have been the 25th Anniversary and a huge celebration of all we have accomplished in the fight against cancer.
I have been very reluctant to ask for donations as so many are suffering during this health and economic crisis but even in the face of this newest disease, cancer still impacts so many of us.
When I first did the Ride for Roswell in 2002 little did I know how integral a part of my life Roswell Park Cancer Institute would literally become. I am so grateful to the dedicated and caring men and women who work there from the researchers to the surgeons, from the orderlies and technicians to the doctors, nurses and physician assistants. Today they are also working to fight and cure the Coronavirus.
I am also extremely grateful to all of you who have given so generously over the years. Through your outpouring of generosity, I raised over $100,000 since I joined the Ride in 2002.
I am again riding with team "Kids Just Want To Have Fun" which promises to match 50% of my pledges. For those of you who have contributed in the past and those who may be supporting me for the first time, please take a moment to give what you can.
Thank you for your support. Stay safe and be well.
