2015 is the 4th annual 'Closer to Free' cycling event

How would you like to be one of the Heroes to many that battle cancer every year? You can be by donating and supporting this cause. Every dollar counts whether it’s $1, $5, $25 or more as 100% of the funds raised from this event benefit this charity

There are a few ways to get involved are:

  • by volunteering
  • by Donating and Supporting this charit
  • or participate joining the thousands of riders on your own or  with a team

I’m going to support this charity On September 12th, by participating in the 4th annual Closer to Free Ride for Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven. This will be my second year supporting Smilow fundraising and riding the Century (100mi) event. I ride to celebrate the lives, the survivors, and in memory of those who have experienced cancers hardships. Some of these people include my family members and friends

I have committed to raising $500.00 and I hope you will help me reach (or even exceed) that goal. Any size donation is appreciated. 100 percent of the dollars I raise for the Closer to Free Ride will directly support patient care and research at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven Hospital. Smilow is Southern New England's premier cancer hospital and the Ride is its signature fundraising event.

Cancer touches so many people in our community and the Closer to Free Ride is a great way to help fight this terrible disease. Please seriously consider this request and let your neighbors, and community know that you are joining in the cause. If you would like more information about the event and/or are interested in joining my team or volunteering please let me know.

Together We Can Make a Difference and make everyone closer to free!
Thank You in advance for supporting the Smilow Cancer Hospital. Your Donation will assist many that are afflicted by this cruel disease.

Best Regards,
