Brent Hudson of the Corporate office will be riding in the 2008 13th Annual Ride for Roswell. This is his 5th straight year of raising funds and riding the 100km route. Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY is one of the premier cancer research and treatment centers in the United States.
One out of three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Cancer is also the leading cause of death from disease in children ages 1 to 14. Money raised by The Ride for Roswell will help researchers and physicians better understand the causes of cancer and discover new methods of prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Last year alone, Roswell Park treated more than 24,000 patients.
The 2007 Ride for Roswell brought together more than 5,000 cyclists and 600 volunteers to raise a record $1.5 million to fuel groundbreaking research to end cancer and save lives. Over 300 teams representing families, corporations, religious and community organizations, as well as hundreds of individual riders rode to honor loved ones, co-workers and friends who have courageously faced cancer; to celebrate survivorship; and to make a difference for tomorrow’s cures at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
For the last three years, Brent has been among the top 25 riders in donations received. To support this great cause, please visit Brent’s Ride web page at:
