HARVARD — The Virginia Thurston Healing Garden Cancer Support Center is pleased to announce their second annual Ride to Thrive — a metric and half metric (64 or 32 mile options) cycling event through gorgeous Nashoba Valley, on Sunday, Sept. 11.
“We are thrilled to be in our 16th year of thriving and growing, offering support to community members and their families of our surrounding towns and cities who need the Healing Garden’s vitally helpful cancer support services,” said Nanci Bishop, Director of Development at the Healing Garden. “If cycling is your thing, or you have been touched by cancer and want to do something to help, this is for you! This is a fully supported event, with road-side assistance, water stops and mini-massages, food and spirits upon your return. You can do the 32 miles, or 64, be a virtual cyclist, or set up a team to each ride a portion that you feel comfortable with. It was a tremendous experience last year and is sure to be fun again this year. ”
The Healing Garden provides a community of support where education and cancer support therapies join with nature to improve the quality of life for all those affected by cancer.
Novices as well as experienced cyclists are sought to raise needed operating dollars.There is no fundraising minimum.
