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 to The Golden Gate Bridge.  Last year, we did an 1850-mile ride through Philadelphia, through New Jerset, Connecticut, New York, Ohio, West Virginia and finished in Washington, DC.  During the past two years, we have raised over $143,000.

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.

We will ride from August 22 until September 8, and each day we will honor someone who has been impacted by lung cancer, such as patients, survivors, caregivers, doctors, nurses and anyone who wants to change the course of lung cancer.  You can see what we did last year by clicking HERE.

In addition, we will have a tribute every day in November (Lung Cancer Awareness Month) when we will have the Ride Hard Breathe Easy Challenge.
