The first ever Chainbreaker Ride is coming this weekend (August 11-13) and Team-Sarcoma is “ready to ride.” Thus far, 13 Team-Sarcoma riders have raised over $18,000 for Sarcoma cancer research at the University of Minnesota! There is still time to ride and still time to support our team and sarcoma research at the U of MN!
Tom Boardman, Team-Sarcoma co-Captain explains, “We have a new and exciting opportunity in partnering with Chainbreaker, a national movement to end cancer that that focuses on bike rides to raise funds, and the University of Minnesota, our longtime collaborator. I hope many of you will ride and support the Team Sarcoma maiden Chainbreaker ride. Rides vary from 25, 50, and 100 miles to a two-day 180 mile ride with 100% of the proceeds for the benefit of sarcoma research and education at the University of Minnesota.”
Christophe Lenglet, the other Team-Sarcoma Co-Captain is riding not only to find cures for sarcoma but in support of his wife Katie who lost her sister Nicole Anderson last spring to LMS. “It is truly an honor for me to co-captain this team. This ride will raise awareness about sarcoma cancers, and funds for critically needed sarcoma research. I am a researcher at the University. I don’t work directly on cancer research, but I know the importance of fundraisers like Chainbreaker; they make it possible for researchers to test new ideas that can sometimes lead to groundbreaking discoveries. This is why it is important to get involved. Please think about coming to ride with us, about donating (every dollar counts) and telling your family and friends about the Chainbreaker!”
Whether or not you can ride, join us Friday evening (6:30 pm) to listen to osteosarcoma survivor, Woody Roseland, kick off the opening program. However, you need to RSVP to join us. The opening ceremony is at Blue Cross Blue Shield Eagan Campus - 3400 Yankee Doodle Road, Eagan, MN.
