Come Join Me March 9th to Help Some Cancer Patients Win Their Battle

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Cornerstone Business Group Inc 0225086119

We're at it again.  This March, you have a chance to do something good for your body and something good for a cancer patient at the same time.  On March 9th, from 7:30 am - 5:30 pm, the Valley Healthy Wellness and Fitness Center in Winchester, VA will be hosting 10 Hour Pedal for a Cure event to benefit the Angel Trust Fund at the Winchester Medical Center Foundation.

Angel Trust Fund is one of a number of funds at the Winchester Medical Center Foundation that offers assistance to patients who need some sort of assistance with their care.  Angel Trust Fund is cancer specific.  Their support might be treatment related, or it might as simple as providing transportation to treatment.  The Angel Trust Fund makes sure that those who have specific financial needs during their treatment are able to have those needs met during those the scariest days of their lives.

My challenge to you is, "What can you do to help? I'm glad you asked.  You can sponsor a bike for the 10 hours.  You can build a team of riders who will ride each hour during the event.  You can participate by recruiting others to participate in the event.  You can give a donation to the Angel Trust Foundation, or you can help at the event.  We'd love for you to do all of the above, but whatever you can offer this great event will be appreciated. 

Bikes are reserved for the event at $200 each.  Teams can be 1 - 10.  New classes start every hour on the 30 (7:30, 8:30, etc).  There will be opportunities to drop by, donate and ride on a availability basis. 

This year, we have a very special treat for the riders.  Ted Garber, an amazing musician, songwriter and performer will be dropping by to entertain the riders during the late morning period.  If you haven't hear Ted before, you're in for a treat. 

If you'd like to donate to the cause, you can mail a check to Winchester Medical Center Foundation, Attn: Angel Trust Fund, 220 Campus Blvd, Suite 402, Winchester, VA 22601.  You can also drop into the center and reserve your bike, drop off a check and/or get more information.  The sign up sheet is at the front desk. 

Please plan to come out and join us for the great cause and get a healthy dose of exercise in the process.  You may never know exactly who you helped, but know that someone, in the process of beating cancer, is thankful for your support.

Absolutely, Andrea.  I'm really glad to have you on board. 

Tom, it does seem like was just a short time ago.  Actually, it was Novembr 2011.  How about that?

The hosptial is less than 1/4 mile away, James.  We've got you covered.

Thank you, Sheila.  I'd love to see it go bigger than last time.  That would be great!
