The RIde Against Cancer
The National GRACE Foundation's RIde Against Cancer will raise funds for Hasbro Childrens Hospital, The National GRACE Foundation and the Isabel Helen Farnum Scholarship.
Hasbro Childrens Hospital is well known in RI, southern MA and eastern CT as a top hospital for treatment of pediatric patients. The combination of reknown experts, cutting edge technology and ground breaking research result in this local world class facility.
The National GRACE Foundation's mission is stated in it's name; GRACE stands for Growing, Recovering, Achieving a College Education. GRACE helps pediatric cancer survivors go to college. FREE admissions and financial aid counseling is a small part of what is offered as part of our services.
As part of the National GRACE Foundation, the Isabel Helen Farnum Scholarship was established in 2012 to assist a selected student afford a college education. All monies raised for this scholarship are utilized solely for that purpose. The goal is to build the funds to a level where the scholarship can be offered to numerous students simultaneously.
The RIde course will be a scenic bike ride through southwestern RI consisting of two options; a 61 mile route as well as a 32 mile route.
