Ride Chairs Message: Boston Brain Tumor Ride

Sunday, May 19, 2019, 200 West St, Waltham, MA


Despite the snow you may be seeing out your window, the 25th anniversary of the Boston Brain Tumor Bike Ride is just around the corner and now less than 70 days away! We are as excited as ever for this year’s ride and the NBTS staff, along with the volunteer committee, have made tremendous progress getting ready.  We wanted to highlight two things in this month’s update.

  • CELEBRATE 25 years! One of the key focuses this year will be to celebrate the 25th anniversary.  To date this ride alone has raised over $17M to the cause which is contributing to the impressive research and care for patients.  If you have not signed up for the ride already, please do so – today at www.braintumorride.org/Boston
  • CHALLENGE yourself! To make it interesting, please challenge yourself and others to improve upon past results by 25% or more – that could mean raise 25% more, get 25% more teammates, etc.  Also, if you register by April 1st, you will get a special edition, 25th anniversary jersey for the ride.
  • MORE Info? If you need any details on the important work the NBTS is doing or to help solicit funds or riders, this Boston Ride one-pager might help!
  • REMINDER! As a friendly reminder, we have a few pre-events to help everyone get ready for the ride and get to know others in the community.  These include a free bike repair clinic, Ride for a Common Cause and our training ride at Jack’s Abby. Additional details can be found here: http://events.braintumor.org/events/boston-brain-tumor-ride/pre-ride-events/.

Thanks, as always, for being such an important part of this community and supporters for a critical cause.  We look forward to seeing you on May 19th, if not before then at one of the pre-events.

Steven Branfman, Michael Corkin and Rick Mines
