BENEFITING: Brigham and Women's Hospital
TEAM BRIGHAM HEALTH
We are 4 female cyclists with an average age of 61, participating in the country’s most grueling cross-country bike race. Race Across America (RAAM) is a 3,063 mile, non-stop cross-country cycling race beginning in California and ending in Maryland.
-Establish the 4-Woman 60+ Team Record (it's never been done), beat the woman's 50 -59 record, and finish RAAM in less than 7 days!
-Break barriers and inspire women to overcome obstacles, make healthy life choices and follow their passions.
-Support the improvement of women's health by raising money for the Women's Health Fund at Brigham and Women's Hospital
WHY BRIGHAM HEALTH?
We’ve lost count of how many times we’ve gotten back on our bikes after broken necks, broken hips, broken hearts and broken brains. We are deeply grateful for our health care and the love of our families, trainers, and medical teams for enabling each of our many recoveries.
We are honored to have BRIGHAM HEALTH as our lead sponsor and partner. Brigham Health is home to Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, consistently ranked as one of the best hospitals in the US.
Our team has personal connections to BWH and health struggles of our own, so we're proud to give back to a hospital that cares for patients from New England, throughout the United States, and from 120 countries.
All the money we raise will support the Women's Health Fund at Brigham and Women's Hospital which is dedicated to improving the health of women and transforming their medical care by integrating leading-edge gender-based research into clinical practice, developing pilot programs targeting specific populations and areas of women's health, and providing care for all aspects of women's health throughout their lifespan.
