March 2021 Message from National Ride Chairs
Dear NBTS Friends,
It’s March and our 2021 National Brain Tumor Ride is getting closer and closer. Registration is beginning to ramp up with 120 individual and 35 teams signed up to date. Your Ride Committee remains hard at work putting the plans together for a special streaming event on May 16 at 12 PM EST. Meanwhile, our National Brain Tumor Ride Zwift Ride Series has been well attended and our Peloton Series will kick off on March 10.
Despite the COVID environment that we’ve all been navigating through, because of the drive, commitment and devotion of our Ride Community, our 2020 fundraising total of $309,000 was impressive. But, are we stopping here? Of course not. With your help we’ll reach, and hopefully surpass, our 2021 goal of $325,000. Will you help us achieve this goal? Will you channel your dedication to helping the researchers and doctors discover and put in place the treatments and cures that we are so desperately working towards? Will you join the effort?
You can make an impact. You can make a difference in the lives of patients and their families. Plan a ride wherever you are, California to Maine, Minnesota to Texas. Indoors on your trainer or outdoors if you’re comfortable and it’s safe. How you choose to ride doesn’t matter. The goal is to push those pedals, spin those wheels and raise some much-needed funds.
Start a team and recruit your family and friends to join. We need you!
With sincere and heartfelt thanks,
Your National Brain Tumor Ride Chairs
Steven Branfman, Michael Corkin, & Rick Mines
