This year, nearly 1.5 million people will hear the words “You have cancer,” and there’s a good chance that some of them will be people we know and love. That is why we will be getting on our bikes and riding 66 miles this time next week to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays – where cancer never steals another year from anybody’s life – by helping the American Cancer Society’s work.
Together we can make sure that anyone affected by cancer can count on the American Cancer Society to provide tips and tools to help people reduce their risk of cancer; to be in their corner around the clock at 1-800-227-2345 and www.cancer.org; to fund and conduct groundbreaking research into cancer’s causes, treatments, and cures; and work with lawmakers to create laws that defeat cancer.
If you are in the area and want to join our cheering team, please email Annmarie Hocker or if you would like to make a secure, tax-deductible online donation to the American Cancer Society to support our team, please visit our team page. Along with our riders and cheer team, we will be passing out our new grass fed protein to keep the riders going. Hope to see you there!
