Hope Ride Research Rally – May 30

If you’re in the Cleveland area, come out to the Hope Ride Research Rally on May 30.

You’ll have a chance to meet other Pan Ohio Hope Ride cyclists, check out the Cleveland Hope Lodge, and ride with researchers from the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals that have been funded by the American Cancer Society. This recreational event begins at the Cleveland Hope Lodge (11432 Mayfield Rd. Cleveland, OH) at 9:00 AM on May 30 for a ride down Euclid Avenue to Public Square and back.

RSVP via email.

The Pan Ohio Hope Ride has already raised $69,443.35! And there’s still time to register for the ride or make a donation.  Don’t forget that if you register before June12, you’ll be entered to win a European VBT Bike Tour.


How your donation helps: Hope Lodges

Imagine if someone you loved was diagnosed with cancer.  What would you do?  Where would you even start?

Then, to make things even worse, imagine if you learned that the only place for your loved one to get treatment was far from home.  Where would you stay?  How much would a hotel bill cost while you wait for weeks of hospital stays to be over?

This is precisely why the American Cancer Society created the Hope Lodges.  The Hope Lodges provide a place for families to stay while they’re loved ones are undergoing cancer treatment.  It saves them the stress of worrying about where they’ll sleep, and lets them focus on their loved one.  And since the other guests of the Hope Lodge are going through the exact same thing, they also find a nurturing and understanding community.

Donations raised by the Pan Ohio Hope Ride will benefit Hope Lodges directly.  Your donation makes a real difference for people whose lives have been affected by cancer.
