Thank you for visiting the Ride for Roswell fundraising site. I am riding in honor and memory of a very close friend, Jake Madonia. He passed away in April 2018 after a 10 year battle against Synovial Sarcoma, a rare soft tissue cancer.
The Lotus Flower Giving Society was established to carry Jake’s legacy forward and fulfill his dream of creating an official not-for-profit organization to support those in need. Jake was a registered nurse at Roswell Park and was committed to supporting those battling this rare disease. Our mission is to provide financial support to those fighting Synovial Sarcoma and raise funding to support research of this rare cancer. I am a proud member of the Board of Directors of the organization and invite you to visit lotusflowergivingsociety.org to learn more.
The Ride for Roswell is one of the fundraising events that supports The Lotus Flower Giving Society’s mission. All proceeds I raise and all proceeds that other members of Team Madonia raise will be contributed directly to Sarcoma research at Roswell Park. Sarcoma research is extremely underfunded and we are committed to directing each dollar raised through Team Madonia to support this specific area of research.
I’m looking forward to completing this 30 mile ride in memory of Jake and to support Sarcoma research at Roswell Park. Thank you in advance for your support!
