The Cause: Roswell Park Cancer Research¨The Empire State Ride is a long-distance cycling tour that raises funds for cancer research. A seven-day, 500 mile cycling tour that starts in New York City and crosses New York State ending in Niagara Falls.
The Goal: My goal is to raise $5000 through corporate or individual sponsorships. any donation of any amount will help get me there!
My Motivation: Almost everyone I know has been affected by cancer in some fashion. I have lost family and friends to this disease. My hopes are that perhaps the monies I raise will make a difference in someone's life, it may fund an intern who finds a cure or better way of dealing with this disease or allow a family some comforts they would otherwise not be able to afford.
The Ride: The ride and raising funds will be my challenge.
