Help Us Support Local Cancer Patients!

The 12th Annual Run N Ride for the Cure is coming up Sunday, June 5th and we need your help as a sponsor to raise money for the St John’s Cancer Support Fund.

Over the past eleven years we’ve raised over $85,000 and attracted 2,100 participants. All of the money raised has gone to local individuals and families facing financial difficulties as a result of their treatment for cancer. In addition, if the appropriate treatment (radiation therapy, for example) is not available through St. John’s these funds are available to help off-set travel expenses. The fund is set up within the St. John’s Medical Center Foundation. Judy Basye, director of the Oncology Department, administers the fund. Judy has indicated that the need is so great that each year’s funds are completely dispersed.

The fund’s revenue comes from three sources: company race sponsorship, entry fees and donations. 100% of all sponsorships, entry fees and donations are allocated to this fund! No “administrative fees”!

The Run N Ride is a duathlon—a 5 km run combined with a 15 km ride. The start – finish is located in beautiful Wilson, Wyoming. The course follows the scenic Fish Creek Road—a beautiful two-lane country road that winds north of Wilson. The race is an “out-and-back”—with the cycling leg following Fish Creek Road to its culmination, approximately 4 ½ miles north of Wilson. There are categories for everyone! In addition to individual categories for men and women, there are men’s and women’s team and mixed team categories. To top it off there are categories for teens —and young kids have their own shorter race course! You’d like to participate but don’t wish to race? No problem! There is a non-timed “fun” class! Lastly, this year’s race coincides with the National Cancer Survivor’s Day. There will be special recognition for those individuals who participate.
