The proceeds of the ride are used to fight against breast cancer. The beneficiaries this year are the organization pinkribbongirls.org. But breast cancer has a face to it. In fact many faces. There are two ladies that are going to be specific beneficiaries.
Melissa Morrison a 35 year old single mother of two toddlers is one person that will get some much needed assistance. Her breast cancer was stage 3 and she had 6 rounds of chemo, 31 doses of radiation and 20 Herceptin treatments. In addition she has gone thru 6 surgeries.
Also Angie Auel, a forty year old mother of three and a school teacher is the other specific beneficiary. In January 2012 she found out she had stage 4 cancer.
She battles hard everyday.
The ride starts at the Holy Grail Banks 161 Joe Nuxall Way. Registration is at 10:30 and bikes depart at 12:30. The ride ends at McDogs Lakeside saloon 3611 Bevis Way.
