The 2022 Ride for Roswell raised:
Congratulations to everyone who participated.
Here’s a look at the highlights:
- More than 7,700 riders joined us in the ride to end cancer
- 700 of those riders were patients and survivors
- 800 teams joined the cause, with sizes ranging from two to 100 people
- 4,000 riders said they were riding in honor or memory of someone with cancer — that’s more than half the riders!
The Ride community is making a huge impact when it comes to raising funds for cancer research, new clinical trials and quality-of-life programs. Here’s a look at what your efforts make possible:
- Roswell Park sees over 288,000 outpatient visits each year and has over 46,000 patients under active care.
- Roswell Park offers more than 400 clinical trials with more than 7,000 patients enrolled in one.
- In 2021, more than 50 Quality of Life grants were awarded to bring comfort and joy to patients. These programs included wigs, transportation, translation and financial support.
- More than 20 donor-funded research grants were awarded last year through a peer-reviewed internal competition. These research grants could discover the next advancement in how cancer is diagnosed and treated.
- The seed funding provided through the Ride can help Roswell Park researchers generate an additional $13 in new grant funding from outside sources to continue their research.
… and it’s all because of this community!
