Nearly 120 cyclists turned out in support of LIFEcycle’s annual “Ride ’Round Rhody” Bike-a-Thon on Sunday, August 11, to raise funds for Lifespan’s Comprehensive Cancer Center at Rhode Island Hospital, Hasbro Children’s Hospital, The Miriam Hospital and Newport Hospital. In total, this signature event generated more than $76,000 for local cancer care and research—more than doubling the impressive amount raised in 2012.
Beginning and finishing at Bryant University in Smithfield on a picture-perfect summer morning, riders took to the streets to complete their choice of a 25-, 50-, or 75-mile route—each offering a mix of gently rolling roads, challenging climbs and beautiful scenery. The event also featured a Health & Wellness Fair with nine exhibitors. More than 85 volunteers, many representing the Lifespan family, donated their time and talents to ensure the event’s success.
The funds raised were the result of 2,000 generous donors. Since 2009, LIFEcycle, Inc. has been an invaluable partner of our work, raising more than $225,000 through this inspirational signature event.
