Committee Chairs Message: Boston Brain Tumor Ride

Cycling to turn progress into promise

March 2018

It’s March. Winter is beginning to fade and Spring is slowly coming into view. This is when we on your ride committee begin to get a little antsy. Are our ride routes set? Have we planned for enough food? Are our rest stops confirmed? Do we have enough sag vehicles and mechanics ready to roll? And there is more, much more to tend to to make our Boston Brain Tumor Ride enjoyable for you and successful for the National Brain Tumor Society. Of course there are two more critically important components that we perseverate over; Do we have enough people to fill our Volunteer Staff, and what can we do to increase the participation with more riders? Well, this is where you come in. Help spread the word. Recruit your family and friends as riders and as volunteers. As a rider you and your friends will be on the road with your bike as a metaphor. Every hill you climb will represent a mountain that someone in the throes of cancer faces every day. Every hill you descend will relax your legs and ease your breathing just as a patient and their loved ones feel when they get the good news that their treatment is working and they are on the mend. Those of us who have been through this understand it all too well.


So, if you haven’t registered for the Boston Brain Tumor Ride the TIME IS NOW!!! Click the link and get on board. While you’re at it, grab a friend, do a little arm twisting, and let’s grow this ride to the level that we know it can be! Together we will pedal to turn progress into promise

For Michael Corkin and myself, Co-Chairs, Boston Brain Tumor Ride, and our entire Ride Committee,

Love to all,
