Deirdre's 2019 Prouty Ultimate!
Breaking news!!! Thanks to your generosity and that of some amazing matches I have tripled my fundraising goal. We can do this!
This year I will be participating in the 38th Annual Prouty, held on July 12 & 13, 2019, in Hanover, New Hampshire: 200 miles of road biking in Vermont and New Hampshire over two days.
We all have friends facing cancer, friends who are likely receiving the best support possible. Much of it is thanks to fundraising efforts like these. I ride to stay strong and to help my friends stay strong. I am grateful every day for my health and my friends.
I am a part of a new team this year - Dartmouth Without Borders. This team is captained by Dr. Mary Chamberlin who is an oncologist at Norris Cotton Cancer Center and a cyclist extraordinaire. Mary is a part of a global health initiative at Dartmouth that is working on cancer education and training in low resource countries. Mary hopes to use this team to raise awareness about the rising global burden of cancer in order to expand existing global health programs in Rwanda, Honduras, Kosovo, Tanzania, and Peru to include more oncology specific training and education collaborations. In addition, this team hopes to raise significant money for Norris Cotton Cancer Center for cancer care at home.
Also,please consider entering the event and joining our team! It is rewarding on so many levels and the Prouty website makes it easy. You can also learn more about the great work that Norris Cotton Cancer Center does, how your donation to this year's Prouty will be put to work and to sign up at www.theprouty.org.
Money raised helps to fund cancer research and patient supportive services at Dartmouth's Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 49 comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute. Supporting The Prouty means supporting researchers and clinicians who are working on innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and hopefully, one day, cure cancer. You’re also supporting important patient supportive services that would otherwise not be funded such as support groups, massage, writing and arts therapy programs.
