Spokes of Hope/ Cyclists Combating Cancer - NJ Spoke Information

I received this note from LiveSTRONG Army Northern NJ leader, friend and survivor, Ken Youner about the upcoming Spokes for Hope ride. The purpose of the ride is to make a difference in how cancer is perceived and to inform people about the need to vote, support and discover ways to cure cancer and promote quality survivorship. Check out the website for more information about this awesome activity.

"On Sept. 14,2009 the NJ/NY "spoke" of the national SOH/CCC bike ride promoting cancer support and advocacy will take place. Opening ceremonies are at 8AM at Englewood Hospital in Englewood, NJ 07631. There is no registration fee but a contribution to the Cecile and Ken Youner Fund for Cancer Research (it's mission is to continue the fight for Cecile-100% of funds go directly to support cancer research) is requested. I and others in the Livestrong Army Northern NJ (and anyone else would would like to join us) will then proceed to Baltimore MD, to join all of the riders in the other spokes. We then go to Washington DC. to the NCI and the Capitol.
You are invited to participate in any way you can."
