Fifth Annual Fight Cancer Ride

Fifth Annual Cancer Ride

On August 4, 2012, 13 members of the Blue Knights Virginia III were able to escape the weekend "Honey Do's"and ride to UVA Hospital in Charlottesville. We arrived at the Emily Couric Cancer Center and met with Dr. William Grosh and his wife. It is 120 miles round trip from Richmond Virginia. Our men and women gathered around our President Lonnie Loyal and Dr. Grosh as we presented him with a check for $4,000. Over the past 5 years BK VAIII has donated approximately $15,000.

This trip is a preliminary ride leading up to our Annual Childrens Hospital Teddy Bear Run, scheduled on November 3, 2012. This is our 30th anniversary of our Teddy Bear Run where we donate approximately 1,500 teddy bears to the Children's Hospital as well as monetary donations. We are hoping to have between 1,500 and 2,000 bike participate this year.
