Cancer doesn’t care. It doesn’t care about age. It doesn’t care about your family or friends. It doesn’t care about what it takes from us — or who it leaves behind.
I am one of the captains for Team Wheel Strong! As our team goes into our 3rd year of participating in the Ride for Roswell, I want to say how honored I am to represent this team. I think back to how Wheel Strong originated, as a phone call with my dad on how we were going to Ride for Roswell to respect and honor a close friend of ours who had recently lost his mother. We talked about how we wanted to be a part of something to help with cancer research, supported families and provided hope.
While our team started for one person, last year we had over 50 riders. Each rider has their own story in honor or memory of a loved one. We ride for patients, survivors, hope and cures. I'm proud to see how Wheel Strong has found a place in our community, and each year touches more lives. We ended 2021 ride year fundraising $12,592 then 2022 reaching $25,281.
This year Team Wheel Strong dreams to reach $35,000!!
This wouldn't be possible without everyone who has been apart of Team Wheel Strong! We care about making a difference in the future of cancer research and bringing an end to this devastating disease. That’s why I am participating in the 2023 Ride for Roswell!
Please help my team raise critically needed funds to support the thousands of patients who turn to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center for hope each year. Your donation provides funding that researchers need in order to investigate new treatment options that could save lives in our community and around the world. For every dollar donated, Roswell Park can leverage an additional $13 in new grant funding!
Please consider making a donation today to help find cures. Together, we can make a difference.
