Registration is now open for this year’s Ride For Roswell, which organizers hope will involve up to 10,000 bike riders, volunteers and supporters, and raise more than $4 million.
The fundraiser, the largest of its kind in the nation in terms of participation, will include an opening ceremony June 27 and the ride, rolling out of the University at Buffalo Amherst campus June 28.
To register, visit rideforroswell.org.
A 3-mile family ride along the Amherst Bike Path – even for kids on tricycles – and a new 10-mile route for teens will be part of the event, said Carolyn Human, a volunteer on the Ride for Roswell Marketing Committee.
“This year, the organizers of the race are really focusing on telling the stories of those who ride,” Human said. “It’s incredibly inspirational to talk to riders on race day about why they are there and what motivates them.” The website will provide that opportunity.
Since it started in 1996, The Ride For Roswell has raised nearly $25 million for Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
