Why Ride?

Our mission is to “End the stigma and suffering for lung cancer patients and caregivers, in memory of Kathleen Matthews“.
In 2017, I rode my bike from SAP in Newtown Square, PA to The Golden Gate Bridge.  Last year, we did an 1850-mile ride through Philadelphia, through New Jersey, Connecticut, New York, Ohio, West Virginia and finished in Washington, DC.  We did another 1800-mile ride in 2019, this time in 18 days.  During the past three years, we have raised over $200,000 for research.

NEW IN 2019, we hosted our first ever, Wine Hard Breathe Easy event on June 27 at The Morris Arboretum for a night of fun and hope.  We raised over $35,000 and donated all proceeds to Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple University Lung Center to help ling cancer patients.

Check out the video below about these two rides and contact me at john@rhbe.org if you want to be involved.

Go to our donation site to learn more, especially about how we honor people impacted by lung cancer each day on our ride.

And you can follow us on Twitter @Ride4Lungs, through this blog and on our Facebook Page.
