Cancer Benefit Ride Saturday

0

With the help of their husbands, two women have organized the second annual Ride Because We Care Fun Run Saturday May 9.

Pam Sawver and Destrie Brown started the ride last year to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Both women have been affected by cancer and are passionate about the cause.

Ms. Brown said she battled Hodgkin’s lymphoma and that it was a difficult experience for her and is for others as well. Ms. Shawver has lost family members to cancer.

Last year the ride netted close to $2,500. More than 100 people attended, and the women are hoping to raise even more money at this year’s event. The ride leaves Xmas Hills at 10 a.m. Breakfast will be served, beginning at 8 a.m., for $4 per person. To participate in the ride, organizers are asking this who come to pay $10. Lunch will be served halfway through the ride for $5.

For more information, call Ms. Shawver at 582-1900 or Ms. Brown at 568-0034.
