“I’m so grateful to be here, and because I am here, I just want to try to figure out ways to make life easier for everybody else,” said Maryann. “If you know somebody who has cancer, you give them your love and support, but how you help all cancer patients – is you Ride for Roswell.”

“The Ride helps to give you some power against cancer. I’m so grateful I am able to participate and pay my dues back to Roswell, ride my heart out for my family and friends this disease has taken from me, and to cry some tears that day knowing we are riding toward a future where cancer no longer exists," said Lindsey Gold.

Each of us has the power to make a difference, whether you ride, donate, volunteer or help spread the word. Kathy said her team’s philosophy is, “A penny or a pound, it’s all forward motion.”

With nine routes to choose from ranging from five to 100 miles, there is a perfect Ride Day route for everyone!
