Featured Rider: Roxanne Farrell

Why do you participate in the Ride for Roswell?

My mother passed away at the age of 42 from lung cancer. We never knew she had cancer. My Grandmother was undergoing treatment for breast cancer the first few years of my life. I remember her being sick from the chemo and radiation. My grandfather passed away from Skin cancer. Too many family members have had cancer. I want to help to find cures so it’s not always a death sentence, but curable.

What is your favorite part about Ride weekend?

The love and support of the Thousands of riders and volunteers all coming together for this one amazing cause. Because Cancer sucks, and together hopefully we can make it’s not so bad.

What have you been doing to raise funds for the Ride?

Asking friends, family, and co-workers. Collecting every single penny, nickel, dime, quarter I find on the road, parking lot, floor and call them my “pennies from heaven”.
