  • Thanking my Tomatoes....and my Team Riders!
    31 Aug 2020

    I've just come in from picking another bowl of sweet orange cherry tomatoes--the 8th time in several days. They are seriously productive and have surprised me on every branch... and so have the Riders on CT LIONS ROAR!

    As we set off for a month of great fun and challenge, we are keeping the view of a world without childhood cancer in the distance. Here are some tidbits about a few of our spectacular riders: challenge yourself to match them to the profile pictures!

    Someone was a former public servant who is approaching a significant birthday with several children still at home.

    This former chess champion now bleeds Yankees blue and Raiders silver and black.

    May have taught you in school, loves everything outdoors, and is the first of a kind in their club role.

    Retired professor who worked with child welfare, mental health, and addiction, now is addicted to Lionism!

    Retired physical therapist (terrorist), paints styrofoam heads, and is grandparent of eight.

    Aside from everyday talent, this person has done plumbing, electrical, and general contracting to build two houses, and is the neighborhood "snow elf".

    This is an enthusiastic Leo who looked adorable on the Times Square Billboard on Aug. 19th.

    This person "loves" the challenge of fund raising and has a nephew who is up and coming with the Cleveland Indians.

    Thanking my Tomatoes....and my Team Riders!

Every size donation goes toward fighting kids cancer and after affects, and along with some of those children we were spotlighted in Times Square on Tribute day. Let that be a tribute to YOU. Thank you for all that you do.

  • CT LIONS ROAR----10TH ON NATIONAL TEAM LEADERBOARD!
    7 Jul 2020

    Lions create leaders in so many ways-and now we are aiming to lead the fight for young lives. Research is crucial and in CT we have heard directly from local researchers who often collaborate with others around the globe. We've learned that demographics of age, gender, race, and residence can affect cancer types and rates. Ask one of the Lions on this team!

    4 Jun 2020

    It is so exciting to see that new riders have joined us in the last few days! We have eleven! Everyone is practicing and thinking ahead to September. We will definitely have to change our mileage goal......with the anticipation that more miles means more raised to fight childhood cancer!

    Dust off the bike and accept the challenge!

    In the category of Community Teams, we are #13 nationally!

  • 10 Feb 2020

    This September, CT LIONS ROAR is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    So we are raising funds through our challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.
