Too Many Who Have Endured Cancer!

Too Many Who Have Endured Cancer!

We each have too many family and friends, both children and adults, who have endured cancer. We ride to help support the fight, find cures, and reduce the long term hardships for survivors!

My Story

15 Sep 2022

Dear Team,

We have all had painful conversations about cancer. They all give you that overwhelming feeling. That indescribable feeling/non-feeling that envelops you from the inside out. This September, I am participating in the 2022 Great Cycle Challenge USA to be a part of putting an end to these dreaded conversations.

Our Challenge - to work together to fight cancer! Will you please join our team as a cyclist or by making a donation? My goal is to raise $2,500 for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) in support of its 8th annual Great Cycle Challenge USA and I pledge to you, that I will ride 100 miles throughout the month of September.

Together we have raised over $35,000 for CCRF to fight Children’s Cancer! You have my sincerest appreciation!

Please follow my link above to make your donation or join as a participate in Great Cycle Challenge USA.

Many thanks to you!

Barb

    Dear Friends and Family,

    Together we join the Great Cycle Challenge each year to raise funds for Children's Cancer Research Fund. Thank you!!!! Your generosity and giant, loving hearts are so very much appreciated!! I can not thank you enough.

    Some ways that CCRF focuses on utilizing the funds:

    "We fund research at institutions nationwide, focusing on projects that allow researchers to prove their idea, then reach for even larger grants. Federal funding sources often don’t fund projects until much later in the process. Our goal is to “unstick” these great ideas by closing that funding gap."

    "We understand that when a child is diagnosed with cancer, it affects the whole family. That’s why we fund programs that help families find joy and support during and after cancer treatment, from peer support groups to camps to programs for caregivers and siblings."

    "Your support propels bold ideas forward and empowers researchers to discover treatments that are better and safer for kids, and ensure every child can have a long, healthy life after cancer. "

    Thank you for joining our team!!

    Sending you so many hugs,

    Barb
