Rutland The Fifth Annual 2012 Gayle Sheldon Benefit and Family Fun Day is set for Saturday, July 21, so mark your calendars, bikers.
The Gayle Sheldon Memorial Foundation for Brain Cancer, Inc. was established in honor of Gayle Sheldon, a life-long Vermont resident and beloved member of the community. Her family created the Foundation as a tribute to Gayle, as a way to honor her memory, and also raise awareness for glioblastoma, a devastating form of brain cancer.
In 2008 the first Ride was held with great success with nearly 50 bikes and vehicles participating.
The event raised over $1,000 and helped support the Cancer Center at Rutland Regional Medical Center.
Each year, the event has grown and gained success.
Now in its fourth year, and including an entire day of family fun, the 2012 benefit ride promises to be a wonderful and meaningful event which raises not only money, but the spirits of so many people.
The mission of the foundation is to raise funds to be donated to the Foley Cancer Center, in cooperation with the Rutland Regional Medical Center.
Funds will be used to aid the treatment of patients and their care takers, and to supply information to raise awareness for Glioblastoma Multiform.
Riders can register at Dan Turco and Son Yamaha on the morning of the ride at the Vermont state Fairgrounds in Rutland between 8:30 and 9:45 a.m. please use the Park Street Gate entrance.
The ride departs from the fairgrounds at 10 a.m.
