The Clarence Christian Crusaders are working together again this year to support cancer research at Roswell and to save lives.
Our team is sponsored by Clarence Presbyterian Church as a local mission project. Our fundraising is supplemented by the church congregation; their donations are deposited at Roswell in our rider's accounts.
Why we ride! Together with the members of our church, we have too many friends, family or co-workers who are thankful survivors and also too many loved ones we have lost to cancer. Our goal is to eliminate the fear of hearing test results that indicate cancer. This past year we sadly lost our team member Don Adams who was also a very active member of our church. We will be riding in memory of Don this year. How to join our team: You must register online but it is FREE as registration fees and minimum fundraising requirements have been eliminated. Click on "Join A Team" and put in "Clarence Christian Crusaders." How to Participate with our team: 1) Ride with our team in small groups on July 31, on the Clarence bike trail. Several distances will be available including a short ride to encourage young families to join us. 2) Ride on your own or get together with other team members or your friends. Select a time and place and keep track of your miles. 3) Ride on one of the 5 routes sponsored throughout the city by Roswell. You may sign up free online in specific time slots to allow for only small groups. There will also be various distances to select. Several members of our team will be riding the Grand Island Route. 4) Sign up as a "Virtual Rider" to support our team but do not want to actually ride a bicycle. How to donate: 1) You may use envelopes available in the narthex of the church and place it in the offering. Be sure you make the check out to "Ride For Roswell" NOT the church. 2) Mail a check to the church at 9675 Main Street, Clarence, NY 14031 and indicate Ride For Roswell on it OR mail it to Julie Furminger at 89 Melody Lane, Tonawanda, NY 14150. You may indicate names of "in memory of" or " in honor of" with your check. 3) Donate online, click on "donate" then search for a team and enter team name "Clarence Christian Crusaders" then you MUST select a team rider from the list of riders provided.
We appreciate your support and donations; together we can support much needed funding especially during the Pandemic, at Buffalo's famous Roswell Cancer Hospital which is recognized world wide for their success.
