Rein in Sarcoma volunteer Carol Skaja-Jacobsen was unsure about participating in the Chainbreaker bike ride, but she did it for the cause and had a great experience. Read about her experience below.
When I received the very first notification regarding the Chainbreaker ride, I immediately deleted it, thinking this would never interest me, nor would it be anything I would ever consider doing for a number of reasons.
When I saw that Dr. Cheng, who I am fortunate enough to administratively support in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Minnesota, was our department champion for Chainbreaker, I realized I wanted to help somehow, even if it was just volunteering on the day of the Chainbreaker ride.
