Siskiyou Velo

Southern Oregon's Premier Cycling Club

Kicking Cancer's Butt

Riding for a great causeMy friend and fellow cyclist Jeanne is riding for a great cause and I hope we can help cheer her on.

Dear SiskiyouVelo Family,

As an avid rider I have had my eye on riding Cycle Oregon for at least 25 years and decided this is the year. I am certainly not getting younger. It seemed a little self-serving until I found this wonderful organization within Cycle Oregon called “Ride for a Child” which is a fundraiser for “Candlelighters for Children with Cancer”. I am even more excited to be riding this event with a greater purpose and you can participate with me. This ride is not affiliated with SiskiyouVelo in any way and I will be practicing social distancing if that is still necessary when this ride takes place in September of this year.

“Candlelighters For Children With Cancer” is dedicated to providing support for families in Oregon and SW Washington experiencing childhood cancer every step of the way from diagnosis through treatment and beyond, providing programs such as emergency financial assistance, an annual family camp, family activities, bereavement support, and a hospital meal program that offers comfort and support for families during a difficult journey. Through it all, they never charge families a dime – ever!

These wonderful families are deserving of a hand up.

How can you help, you ask? By sponsoring my ride with a tax-deductible donation to Candlelighters For Children With Cancer. Follow the link below to donate through my personal fundraising page.

No donation is too big or too small!

Thank you so much for your support!

With appreciation,

Jeanne Robbins
