Cyclists are invited to take part in The Ride Grand Island, a biking fundraiser that takes participants on a scenic tour of the Island while raising funds for cancer research and patient support programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
The Ride Grand Island will be held on Sunday, Aug. 21, in Beaver Island State Park. It offers routes for cyclists of all levels. All routes start and end in the park.
Registration fee is $10 for all participants, plus a pledge minimum of $25 for current Extra Mile Club members (those who raised $1,000 at the June 2011 ride); $50 pledge minimum for any riders who participated in the June 2011 ride or the ride spinning event 2011; and $100 pledge minimum for all new riders.
Volunteers are also needed to donate their time. To learn more, visit www.RideForRoswell.org or call THE-RIDE (843-7433).
