Bike riding for a good cause

Among the LLS personnel in Lake Tahoe were, from left, Marina Keller, Tom Ogood, John Wiltshire and Tessie Massa.

In June, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) national office in Rye Brook sent “Team Ride Brook,” to Lake Tahoe, Nevada, for an LLS Team in Training event which has been dubbed “America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride.” The bike ride featured several distance options, such as 100 miles, 72 miles and 35 miles. The entrance fee, which supported leukemia research, varied according to the length of the ride.

The team from Rye Brook joined with more than 800 other cyclists. The bike event annually raises more than $3 million in the fight against cancer. The entire Team in Training series of events has raised more than $1.5 billion for LLS since it began in 1988 with 38 runners raising $320,000 in the New York City marathon.
