Altering the course for Adolescents and Young Adult Cancers!
See you on Sunday July 21, 2013!

Ride with friends and/or family in MEMORY of those we lost and in HONOR of those now in the battle.

"Reid’s Ride "is a bicycling event to raise funds to fight adolescents and young adults (AYA) cancers.  Reid’s Ride 28 mile bike-a-thon is on Sunday July 21, 2013. The Ride starts at Lynnfield High School. Registration is at 6:30 am and we start riding at 7:30am. We ride through Middleton, Danvers, Beverly, Manchester and end at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester.  The route is well-marked and is supported by technical and safety chase teams from Lyons Ambulance, Cape Ann Amateur Radio, Landry’s Bicycles and volunteer motorcycle escorts.  The ride finished Stage Fort Park with festivities, music, prizes, MIX104 .1 ice cream truck, music provided by B-Yond Music and a barbeque featuring specialty burgers courtesy of Fuddruckers . Pizza from Papa Gino’s  and refreshments including cold beverages courtesy of Dunkin Donuts Lead Event Sponsor!

A unique aspect of this Ride is that it is organized by and for young adults. Together with your support they will bring a brighter day for the futures of those adolescents and young adults diagnosed with cancer. Please visit our website[] OR[] They are full with information about our Ride and foundation.

"Reid’s Ride" is a do-able, healthy, fun and affordable way to participate in the battle against young adult cancers. It is the primary fund-raising event for the Reid Sacco AYA Cancer  Fund. That Fund supports clinical and scientific research targeted at finding better treatments-and someday a cure-for the cancers that predominantly strike young adults. The Reid Sacco AYA Cancer Alliance is an organization of volunteers committed to raising funds and awareness for AYA cancer patients.  The Ride is tirelessly organized and run by Alliance volunteers, with the support of local community organizations and of both large and small businesses.

"Reid’s Ride Volunteers" If you are unable to ride, perhaps you would like to volunteer in this year’s Ride? If interested , please email me and I or Meaghan get back to you!
