Why I ride?
Cancer touches everybody’s life. I have lost several friends and former colleagues to cancer. This year I will ride in honor of friends: Archie Glick, Myrna de Graaff, Donna Frydrychowski, Sjaak Arts and Robin Solis. I will ride in support of Mark Kucharski, Shelly Reisdorf and Hanneke Nicolaes.
Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center does a lot of cancer research. Thanks to their work on treatments and medicines more and more people survive cancer. The funds raised by the Ride for Roswell make all this possible.
2021 will be my 5th Ride for Roswell, with a little bit of the feel of pre-covid Ride editions. Last year was a totally different version of the Ride. No mass event, but small, socially distance, rides. With a small group of friends, we did a Ride for Roswell tribute ride on the original Ride weekend.
In the weeks after I was a ride marshal at rides on Grand Island and in Akron.
This year I will be riding the 62 mile ride out of NCCC (Niagara County Community College).
Last year I raised, thanks to all my generous friends, $ 16,000!!!. My goal this year will be to at least raise the same amount.
Can I count on your support? Thanks
