Learn about upcoming August events for your participation and support of Rein in Sarcoma's mission in the interview below with Tom Boardman: RIS Development Committee Chair, Team Sarcoma Captain for the Chainbreaker Bike Ride, and Organizer of the RIS Annual Golf Tournament.
1. Can you tell me a little about the two events coming up?
The first is Chainbreaker 2018 which is a bike ride event to raise money for cancer research at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center. This event will be August 11. We participated in the inaugural Chainbreaker event in 2017 with 18 riders and raised over $23,000, all of which went to sarcoma research. This year we have 27 riders and have raised over $50,000 so far.
The second event is the RIS Charity Golf Challenge on August 20. We had our first golf tournament last year and it was sufficiently successful for us to have another this year. We hope to have over 70 golfers join us for lunch, a scramble format golf tournament and a dinner. We will have prizes including a 2018 SUV for anyone who gets a hole in one. The vehicle is being donated by one of our sponsors, PSI Cars. Our lead sponsor this year is Legacy Wealth, a financial advising firm located in Woodbury, MN.
