A project of RALLY FOUNDATION FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH
The 5th annual Tour de Harrison will be taking place on Sunday, June 3rd in Richmond, VA. This gentle 10 mile bike ride will begin at 4 pm.
Join us on Sunday, June 3rd at 4:00 pm at Agecroft Hall, 4305 Sulgrave Rd., for the 5th annual Tour de Harrison, a gentle 10-mile family bike ride through Windsor Farms and Byrd Park in Richmond, VA. Proceeds from the Tour de Harrison will go towards funding of research into T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Last year, we raised over $30,000 with 130 riders and 225 supporters. The money raised was issued as a grant to Dr. Adolfo Ferrando and his team at Columbia University to bolster his research on NOTCH1 genes and their effect on T-cell leukemia. Progress is being made on epigenetic tumor suppressor genes, mutations on NOTCH1 genes and oncogene translocations which are all providing clues to potential cures. (Click here for more information.) Dr. Ferrando, a rider last year, comments, “The Tour de Harrison is one of the most inspiring events I ever had the opportunity to participate in. The Strickler family, the Rally Foundation and everybody who took part on the Tour demonstrated the tight bonds of their community and their commitment to fight Childhood Cancer through supporting research.” Thanks to you, we are making a real difference in T-cell cancer research.
