2nd annual Spokes of Hope: A Cancer Advocacy Ride

My friend , kidney cancer survivor Dr. Ken Youner is the founder of the Cecile and Ken Youner Fund for Cancer Research. The fund has raised $28,000 so far and has supported Dr. Amato Gracia a cancer researcher at Stanford University.

From Ken's e-mail-
"On Sunday, Oct 10, 2010 you have the opportunity to do three of your favorite things. Ride your bike, eat, and yes help support those of us fighting cancer and help directly fund cancer research (OK 4 things). Join the Spokes of Hope: A Cancer Advocacy ride (meet time 8:30AM in front of hospital) at Englewood Hospital-in Englewood NJ 07631. We will then ride to the John Theurer Cancer and the Tomorrow Childrens Fund at Hackensack University MC in Hackensack NJ of course. We then ride back to NYC via the GWB and enter Central Park for a loop to The new Tisch Cancer center at The Mt Sinai MC on Madison Ave and 96th St. The ride is in memory of my beloved wife Cecile who died in 2008 of acute leukemia while battling stage 4 breast cancer. "

If you are in the NJ/ NY/ Conn / PA area and a cyclist who wants to ride for a reason please join Ken. More information can be found here.

Every Day is a Blessing!And my life has been blessed by having survivors like Ken as friends.
