Call For Action: Ride For Roswell 2013

The Ride For Roswell is one of Buffalo's biggest annual fundraisers. Last year, the fundraiser brought in over 3 million dollars for cancer research in the area. 

After being terrified of bikes for years following a biking accident, my boyfriend talked me into participating last year, and I had an absolute blast riding the 20 mile river route. 

It was an incredibly inspiring and emotional day for me as I rode with thousands of others who participated. Check out my review from last year's event HERE

We created a Lovin' On Buffalo team, and our four team members raised around $1200 for cancer research. This year, I've set the team up again and am now looking for team members!

If you have ever wanted to participate but were never motivated to, here is your chance! If you have been participating for years, but never on team, here is your chance!

We are looking for anyone and everyone who is willing to give up one Saturday morning/afternoon to ride in honor of someone you know who has cancer and beat it, or in memory of someone who lost their life to cancer. EVERYONE has been touched by cancer in some way, and with our help, we can get Roswell Park one step closer to finding a cure through the money we raise. 

This year's event will take place on Saturday, June 22nd at The University of Buffalo, North Campus. You can find out more information on the ride at the website www.rideforroswell.org

Being a member of Team Lovin' On Buffalo will get you a team t-shirt as well as a pre-race party the week of the event (these are team perks specific to Team Lovin' On Buffalo). Team members need to raise a minimum of $150 in order to be able to ride the day of the event. We can help you raise your minimum if needed!

HERE is a link to our team page. All it takes is a few minutes and a $10.00 registration fee and you will be added to our team! 

If riding is not your thing, consider making a donation to our team page (or my personal page) and cheer us on as we get closer and closer to our goal of $1500.

Thank you in advance to anyone who signs up or makes a donation. Your support is appreciated more than I can express here!!
