May 2018

As we write this, May has dawned and our 2018 Boston Brain Tumor Ride is on the very near horizon. Crunch time has arrived and every one of us connected to the ride needs to hunker down and begin our final preparations for our ride, the only cycling event on the National Brain Tumor Society calendar.

Our Ride Committee is devoted to, and has been working tirelessly to make our 2018 ride a magnificent experience for everyone; fully supported, beautiful 10, 25, 40 and 64 mile routes in a sea of like-minded people. You’ll be spending the morning sharing in the effort to make a difference in the lives of all those who have been affected by this horrible disease.

As we get down to the wire we are reaching out one last time to give you all a little push…if your team had 10 members last year, see if you can make it 12 riders this year…if you were able to raise $700 last year why not make it $1,000 this year.  Its up to all of you to help us raise as much money as we can to fight brain tumors.  The NBTS has made great strides in its mission but the work continues and we need the help of all of you!

Steve, myself, the Ride Committee and the entire NBTS Staff and Board look forward to seeing you all on Sunday May 20, Boston Brain Tumor Ride Celebration Day. We promise a day of friendship, camaraderie, hope, and reward.
