Hope On The Slopes at Jay Peak Resort

Ride For Uki

For Uncle Uki.

Everyone says they know someone special, but this man was something above ordinary. A man that gave and gave and never expected a thing in return except love; and that, he received. Many men to know him, genuinely called him their best friend. This was because he was indeed, the best kind of friend. Tough as can be, but soft for his family and friends. He was deeply loyal by every meaning of the word.

We ride for Uki, because he rode for his family. His definition of family encompasses hundreds of non-relatives coming together on any holiday, simply as an excuse to spend quality time together. Uki fought his battle for eleven long years just to spend every second of time with us as possible. We say long, because without doctors and surgeons and researchers working tirelessly on extending his life, we are not sure if we would have had as many years with him as we got to have. We carry his spirit by sharing our stories of his life with others, and by joining efforts like these to help others in need of love and support. We carry your heart, we carry it in our hearts. 

Cancer has affected so many people I know and love that it's inspired me to join this American Cancer Society event. Taking part in this event gives me the chance to make a difference and honor those touched by cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research and services for people dealing with cancer. I'm also participating to inspire hope for those facing the disease and raising money for the American Cancer Society's event to help save lives from cancer. I hope you'll consider signing up too.

Funds raised support cancer patient programs and groundbreaking research that can help save lives. This event also celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION. That's huge. That's why I'd love your support. Will you join me? And if you can't would you be so kind as to make a donation?

How Fundraising Impacts Your Community

Cancer hits far too close to home, so the funds you raise will help do the same. Through services and resources like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline, cancer patients and their families will feel the love. Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

As of January 2022, we have invested $400 M for potentially lifesaving cancer research grants.

We have received over 250,000 calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support in 2021

Cancer patients benefited from ACS transportation support through our Road TO Recovery program and transportation grants in 2021, with nearly 229,000 rides provided.

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
