Empire State Ride 2021
This year will be my 5th year participating in the Empire State Ride
My goal is to raise $15,000!
I ride for the patients at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center and for my loving parents Angelo and Gloria A ❤ G
The Empire State Ride participants are an amazing group of men and women riding together as a family, and a team, to help fight the ugly thing called cancer and I am so excited to be part of this group for the 5th year in a row!
Cancer has taken so many of our loved ones who are now in heaven rooting us on. As I ride, I hear them say: “Way to go! Keep on going! One pedal at a time! You got this!”
Me, my bike, and Jesus at the wheel:
• In 2020 Team Gby 9 was forced to make lemonade out of lemons and we did it! We raised over $13,000 during a pandemic by way of 180 donations!
• In 2020 Team GBY 9 secured a spot in the top 10 for fundraising!
• In 2020 the Empire State Ride raised over $700,000!
• In the last four years Team Gby 9 has been blessed to have raised $58,236.27 and a bit of winks change (the coin I find from my parents during my rides).
Team Gby 9 is myself and everyone who wishes to donate! Team Gby 9 stands for God Bless You and #9 is my parents lucky number. Let’s be a family and a team to help win this fight against cancer!
The funds raised through the Empire State Ride support cutting-edge cancer research at America’s first cancer center, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, which provides treatment and care for more than 36,000 patients. On average, every dollar donated to Roswell Park leads to an additional $13 in new grant funding. If you wish to donate, no amount is to small. I hope you find it in your heart to support me in this challenge.
As in the past, I will create a list of names to ride with. I keep these folks in my heart and in my prayers along the way. Please send me the names of your loved ones for whom you are honoring with your donation, and I will keep them close for all 500+ miles. ❤
Love & Gby always
