“For me, the Ride for Roswell means hope and a chance for those who are fighting this terrible disease to know that people in the community will come together to raise funds and awareness to help find a cure. It is also for the survivors and the families who have lost loved ones to see first hand when people come together for a common cause, the combined effort is greater than the individual part. For my family, it is for my uncle. It was a pleasure to support the extra mile riders and everyone who attended the ride in 2015.” Jackie, ACPT PTA Niagara Falls.
