Here you are at my otterly hopeful fundraiser for my 5th Ride for Roswell! Team Otterly Phil and we are committed to ride until the suffering of cancer is ended.
Our team is named for my friend Phil who rides with us on the "otterslide". Phil loved and adventured despite the cancers, in great thanks to Roswell Park Cancer Institute. He and my friend Kathy rode together for over 10 years in The Ride for Roswell, and I carry on the tradition in the great company of friends and family as Team "Otterly" Phil.
But I ride for many more than Phil. I have family and friends who have been affected, are in treatment or have left this earth as a result of cancer. I ride for my Father, Mother in law, Sister and Brother, my Brother in law, sadly there are so many. I ride for ROSWELL and the hopeful and heartful work it does. I ride with gratitude for the years Roswell has given my Family to love and to live. I carry their names in my heart as I put foot to pedal on ride day. Won't you join me or give a pledge?
With one in two men and one in three women in America being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, most of us know someone who has been affected by this devastating disease. You can make a difference by supporting us in The Ride For Roswell. Funds raised through The Ride support cutting-edge research and compassionate, innovative patient care programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Please consider making a donation today. Together, we can help find cancer cures and save lives.
With otter gratitude, Team Otterly Phil
