Saturday, June 24th, 2023, our team, the "Tour de Friends" is again riding in the Ride for Roswell!! We have a lot of fun each year, but the mission has always been the same.... to raise money for Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
This is my 17th year riding since 2006 when my wife was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. We started out as I started out with girls and I as "Bigwheel and the Babes" just to help us cope with the uncertainty and fear that this dreaded disease can cause.
Our team has grown through the years and so has our fundraising. We all have loved ones that have been affected and sadly, those that have lost their battle.
So even though we love to ride, we love more to GIVE BACK and help the cause in any small way we can.
And honestly, Roswell IS, HAS, and will CONTINUE making amazing progress for so many.... and allowing those patients to get through it with hope, smiles, and good health!!
This year, for the 1st time, my daughter Jamie and I are hoping to ride Friday night in the Peleton from Roswell Cancer Center to the Celebration of life at U.B.
I've always been emotional about the tradition of this "ride" and I am trusting that we can raise enough to participate in this special ride. I ain't gettin' any younger, so I really am looking forward to it for just this year.
So we would really appreciate any donation that you are moved to make. All of the members of our team are ready to ride and to help our team have a big year of donations for Roswell.
It's absolutely OK not to donate, but please use this time time say a prayer and offer good thoughts for those all of those this Ride benefits.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks again to all that have been supporting our ride all these last 17 years!!
We couldn't do this without all of you!!!!
God continued blessings!!!
Bigwheel.... and The Tour de Friends!!!
