From Your Co-Chairs

Greetings from Boston Brain Tumor Ride HQ!!! Though our 2017 ride is in the rear view mirror, don’t think for an instant that we on the organizing committee have been at rest. On the contrary, we’ve been hard at work planning our 2018 Boston Brain Tumor Ride.

Our theme this year is Cycling To Turn Progress Into Promise and we know that it is a message that you will all connect with.

You’ll see that we’ve initiated a tiered registration fee schedule to encourage early registration. And remember, your registration fee goes directly to your fundraising and is tax deductible. And speaking about registration, we’ve set a lofty goal of 600 riders and with your help we can reach that goal. Recruit just one friend to join you, or even better, get together with a few friends or co-workers and form a team. Train and fundraise together. And if you need some team training and fundraising advice and ideas, you’ve come to the right place. We’re all this together!

We have an exciting lineup of pre-ride events including our 2018 Kickoff Reception on Wednesday evening, January 24 at the Gorse Mill Studios in Needham, and at the other end of the calendar is our ever popular Social/Training Ride on Sunday April 29 hosted by Energy Fitness in Newton.

Here’s to a wonderful Holiday Season. We’ll be back in touch after the New Year.

With love, progress and promise to all,

Steven Branfman and Michael Corkin
