We are riding in memory of our daughter Ellen. Ellen died at the age of 26 from clear cell sarcoma - an extremely rare form of cancer. Despite receiving the best possible treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering, she succumbed to the disease in just three months. Ellen's death was a devastating loss to our family. We miss her every day.
Cancer claims the lives of too many people. Scientific research is the best way to ultimately find the Answer to Cancer.
We are completing a single day, 100 mile ride to raise funds to help support this research.
We are very excited to be participating in this event and are grateful for your donations and for your help in spreading the word. 100% of all donations will go towards research.
Together, we are the Answer to Cancer!
