Roc the Ride - 2017
EVENT DATE: Sep 12, 2017
In its second year, Roc the Ride has grown to a three-day, 270-mile cycling trip to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Roc Solid’s mission to build hope for children and families facing pediatric cancer.
From Sept. 13th - 15th, our 12-member team will cycle from Washington, D.C. to Richmond and then Norfolk to meet families and staff at the major children’s hospitals in each city. Each cyclist has a goal to raise $5,000, and all money raised will benefit Roc Solid's programs.
Roc Solid Foundation (www.rocsolidfoundation.org) is a 501c3 nonprofit that builds hope for families facing pediatric cancer. It’s best known for its Play It Forward initiative, which builds custom playsets for kids ages 1 - 8 and completes room makeovers for kids ages 8 - 18. The organization has completed nearly 300 Play It Forward projects throughout the country. For more information, visit www.rocsolidfoundation.org.
