Join Tom for a ride

It's not too late to participate in Sunday's Reason to Ride, a biking fundraiser for cancer research in Danvers, MA.  Organized by brain cancer survivor Tom DesFosses, this annual event gives participants the option of 10-, 25-, or 50-mile bike rides through beautiful farm land in Massachusetts' north shore (Danvers, Wenham, Ipswich, Essex, Gloucester, and Topsfield). Registration is $25 per child, $50 per adult, and $150 per family to benefit cancer care and research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The family-friendly event also features a trike-a-thon for kids, a Fuddruckers cookout, raffles, music, and much more.

Once again, this year’s presenting sponsor is Fuddruckers. Support for the ride also comes from The Print House, Beverly Cycles, Kelly Fiat, Jungle, and People’s United Bank.

The ride is on, rain or shine, although the weather promises to be lovely.  Registration starts at 8am.  The 50-mile ride starts at 8:30; the 25-mile starts 9:30; and the 10-mile starts 10:30.  Meet at the Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers.
