This year is year #7 for me... This will be the 28th Anniversary or the event, and I cannot think of a better way to get involved once again. I've done the 65 mile route, and the 20 mile with my son, along with the ride my own way. So this time I will be riding the country 34 mile this year.
This has been an event that I look forward to every year since starting. I have never minded the training for this event, as I know what a great facility this is.
My grandmother was in/out of this facility countless times during her battles with Cancer, and every time the staff was there was very upbeat and helpful.
I am trying to make this 7/7 on getting to the extra mile club... This year the Amount for the Extra Mile rose a little bit, and $1500 is the minimum.... last year I went just over.... can we push this even higher?
With many of us knowing someone who has gone through cancer, either surviving or not, this has been a goal of mine a few years now. I can proudly announce that I am riding in the Ride for Roswell. I will be tackling the 65.6 mile course through the country. I know that this ride will be challenging, but it is one I am looking forward to.
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.
