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

 

 

 

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.

 

We are proud to announce that Caidens Ride has partnered up with Sophia's fund based out of Massachusetts. Together we will raise funds and awareness to help this very worthy beneficiary and a local child.

 

Who is Sophia's fund?

 

SOPHIA’S FUND

 

Our mission at Sophia's Fund is derived from a simple question, "What would Sophie want?" Sophia's Fund is dedicated to helping families in their crusade against cancer; either financially or otherwise. We assist with life changes; raising awareness to gain greater support in the local and national communities; and ultimately strive to allow families to focus their energy on the battle.

 

The enormity of childhood cancer cannot be known until one goes through this ordeal. From a parent needing to leave work to care for their child, to other siblings dealing with the trauma of having a brother or sister with a life threatening disease. The need for support is great, and Sophia’s Fund strives to do that even in the smallest of ways.

 

Sophia's Fund is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization

 

We are a donation driven organization that provides financial support to children undergoing cancer treatments and their families. Sophia's Fund is also in the battle to help increase childhood cancer awareness, funding, and research.

 

 

Just like last year, we will be doing lots of fundraising and have a pre ride benefit. Date and location of the benefit will be announced later as well as the ride route.

 

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!!!

 

Heres to making this year even more successful than the last!
