Salem NH to Niagra Falls Buffalo, NY.  Hosted by April Robertson

Please join us for the 2018 Caidens Ride for Pediatric Cancer Awareness. This run is From NH to Niagra Falls Buffalo NY. Details to follow....

I will be adding admins in a bit, if you are interested please let me know.

 

We are looking for sponsors, business, personal and otherwise. We will be fundraising prior to the event as well. Our goal is to raise $3000 to present in Caidens name!

YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS THIS EVENT!

 

While this is promoted as a bike run, anything on wheels is welcome!! There is plenty of support. Hotel information will be provided. I can tell you from last year, this is an AMAZING weekend to be in Niagara Falls, Buffalo, NY.

 

September 1st begins National Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. We will be meeting up with another group there headed by Michael Esposito and his Golden Steps Walk for Pediatric Cancer Awareness and presenting them a check in Caidens honor. The proceeds of Caidens Ride and Michaels benefit will go to two very important organizations in N.Y. that were also contacted to support Caiden on his journey when he was in Memorial Sloan Kettering.

 

On March 17th 2017, 5 month old Caiden Falcon was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. For 7 months Caiden battled his disease surrounded by his family and the love of all the crusaders who followed him. He did so with the ever present smile on his face that brought joy to so many who had the pleasure of knowing him and those whose lives he touched virtually. On November 20, 2017 just after his 1st birthday, Caiden earned his wings...

 

Many of you went to his fundraisers, helped out in numerous ways through fundraisers, helped us build an amazing float in his honor for the Merrimac Santa Parade and attended his services.... THANK YOU!!

 

As you know, if you've ever lost a loved one, the hardest part is going home. What comes next? The fear that the memory of the people that we loved so much will be forgotten. We made a promise to Jo, Ari, Heidi and their families that that would not happen and thus this ride for Caiden was born.

 

Pediatric Cancer is the number 1 cause of death from disease among children. Only 4% of all funds raised for cancer Awareness goes to pediatric cancer research. 4% is NOT enough. The children of the world, their child, our children are worth more than 4%

 

There are approximately 250,000 new cases of kids DIAGNOSED per YEAR. That's roughly 700 per DAY. and each YEAR on average 91,250 children lose their battle that's 250 per DAY!!!

DETAILS COMING SOON!
