V's Ride For Research


This Sunday the 4th Annual Jimmy V Ride for Research will occur at Koka Booth Amphitheater (formerly known as Regency Park). There will be fun events set up for casual bicyclist, as well as the wanna be Lance Armstrong. Be sure to click of the above link to read the brochure of happenings throughout the day. All proceeds go towards the V Foundation which speaks for itself here in this community, as well as across the nation for their charitable and tireless work, seeking cures for all types of Cancer. The weather forecast is going to be great for riding – partly cloudy with a high of 67!

One of our own in the WPH community has signed up for the 100 mile ride. Here he goes by the handle Jose, but his Christian name is Joseph Paul Duprey of Cary, and your encouraged to look at his personal event page and read some of his thoughts on what is motivating him to do something many would deem a ridiculous length of time and energy on a bike. If you would like to donate any amount of funds toward this charity you may do so, following the secure and easy to navigate steps on Joe's event page.

    Thanks Pack Leader,

    Hopefully the proverbial wheels don't fall off. There are three rest stations along the way and my personal goal is to make it to the 2nd station at the 50 mile mark- get the rest and nourishment required and finish the second half.

    Well, that's the plan anyway. Thanks WPH's for posting this and remember - "Don't EVER give up!"
