The History & Mission of Reid's Ride
Reid's Ride is the main fundraising event for the Reid Sacco Adolescent & Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Fund. The Fund is dedicated to supporting clinical and scientific research into finding better treatments -- and someday a cure -- for the cancers that strike adolescents and young adults (AYA). This population of cancer victims has not benefitted from the advances in cancer treatment and survival rates as have other age groups. It is a gap into which Reid, and young adult cancer patients like him, found themselves: willing to fight but without an army of options to help.
Your donations are helping to close that disparity, by allowing the Fund to support innovative programs designed to make sure this age group is not left behind. For the past 7 years, the Fund has supported the Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Program, in a collaboration with Connecticut Children's Medical Center and a number of adult cancer treatment centers in Hartford. The proceeds from Reid’s Ride have also enabled Tufts Medical Center to launch the Reid R. Sacco AYA Program, including the Reid R. Sacco Adolescent & Young Adult Clinic for Cancer and Blood Diseases, located at the Tufts Cancer Center in Boston.
Your participation in Reid's Ride will help these initiatives expand their reach in providing AYA clinical care, education, awareness, and hope for a brighter future!
