April 2018


As we write this, the clock is ticking down with only six weeks to our 2018 Boston Brain Tumor Ride.

Looking out on this rainy April day, we know the weather is going to start to get warmer and all of you winter riding hibernators will wake up, dust off your bikes, pump up the tires and get on the road. It’s also time to look at your calendars, circle May 20 and get your self registered.

Thanks to all of you who contributed your support. 2017 was a banner year for the NBTS and the brain tumor community. Please click here to see where your money goes: However, the fight continues and we have ambitious goals for 2018. We can’t accomplish them without you.

So roll up your sleeves and spread the word about our ride. Recruit your family and friends as riders, volunteers, donors and spectators. There is a patient out there who needs our help. There is a caregiver who can’t go it alone. There are scientists, doctors and heath care professionals who need the crucial funds that we provide. And there is family member or friend who will wake up in the morning with a smile knowing that the NBTS is fighting to make their life beautiful.

We have two more pre-ride events coming up. April 24 is our second bike maintenance clinic at Farina’s Bicycle Center and our annual Social/Training Ride is April 29.

A heartfelt thank you to all of you for all of your past efforts and we look forward to seeing you on May 20 for our Boston Brain Tumor Ride!
