Long-time Park employee, Rosanne Queen, along with her husband David, continued her amazing fundraising efforts in support of Scleroderma research this year. On Sunday, June 16th, 2019 they held their 8th Annual Scleroderma Ride for Research with outstanding results. Here’s what she had to say about this year’s ride:
“Thanks to your support, the Ride for Research has raised over $50,000, with donations still coming in! We had over 90 people join us for our 30km ride and 10km walk or ride around the seawall. On a beautiful sunny day, we all arrived back to a great potluck lunch.
We were joined by Dr. Dunne & Dr. Keen who are part of the research team. They talked about the ongoing research and shared that none of our money raised is going to salaries or expenses for the primary researchers; every dollar goes to the necessities of conducting the research.
As the group started to leave, individuals came by to say what a wonderful day it was and thanked me! I find the recognition and gratitude very humbling because it is your support that raises awareness and makes research possible. Our family, friends and Scleroderma community are essential to make it all happen. I may be the instigator, but I can’t do it alone! A very heartfelt thank you!”
