Why do you participate in the Ride?

The year my husband, Phil Stock, and I married, he was diagnosed with cancer. Roswell saved his life. Nine years later a different cancer was diagnosed and treated at Roswell. We had 5 more years of adventure and love before he was overtaken by cancer. I know without Roswell, we never would have had the time we did to love, laugh and live.

What is your favorite part about Ride weekend?

The finish line because we hope for Roswell to find that cancer finish line. We all know the pain, fear and loss of cancer. So we hug and laugh and cry with hope in our hearts when we ride under that banner every year.

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

Most of our donations come from personal appeals. And honestly, Facebook is an easy way to get out the word. I do a post nearly every week and tag all my teammates.
