Please join us for the 2019 Caidens Ride for Pediatric Cancer Awareness.

 

More details to follow....

 

We are looking for sponsors, business, personal and otherwise. We will be fundraising prior to the event as well.

 

Last year Caidens Ride raised $11,434.86 with the help of our sponsors, the community and our benefit. We rode over 1200 miles round trip to deliver the check in Caidens name.

 

This year we are going to beat that number as we team up with a local childrens cancer non profit as well as help a local New England child.

 

The details will follow in the next few days..STAY TUNED

 

YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS THIS EVENT!

 

 

September is National Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.

 

 

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 as well.

 

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!!!
