When Betsy was diagnosed with breast cancer, she didn’t know how she would cover the cost of treatment on top of her rent and other expenses. Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks was there to help, and paid Betsy’s rent for six months while she underwent chemotherapy. BCFO has helped thousands of families in the Ozarks during their darkest hours, but we can’t do it alone.
Every year bicyclists who ride in our annual “Cycle For Life” raise money to help families like Betsy’s. You can help support breast cancer patients and their families by signing up to ride in our 20th annual “Cycle for Life” fundraiser this Saturday, June 12th. Join us at Moontown Crossing for a 10, 30, or 50-mile ride that’s fun and inclusive for the whole family! Afterward enjoy a burger and brat cookout at Moontown Crossing near Glenstone and I-44.
Check-in begins at 6:15 am. The 50-mile ride begins at 7:00 a.m., the 30-mile ride begins at 7:45 a.m., and the 10-mile ride begins at 8:30 a.m. Rest stops will be at the 30 and 50-mile mark.
Registration can be found here. The first 300 adults registered will receive a free t-shirt.
Registration packets can be picked up at Houlihan’s South, Rick’s Automotive and Macadoodles North. You can also register the day of the ride.
Just as a bike ride can be a challenge, so is tackling the difficulties that come with a breast cancer diagnosis. With your help, BCFO is helping breast cancer patients across the Ozarks cross their personal finish line.
In addition to paying the life expenses of breast cancer patients, proceeds from Cycle for Life will also support BCFO’s free screening mammogram program for women who are uninsured or underinsured.
We believe no one should have to ride alone, so please ride with us! Whether you ride 10 miles or 50 miles, it’s more than just a bike ride – you’re helping an Ozarks family fight cancer. Just ask Betsy.
