First Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Ride and Cookout Sunday, Sept. 30

Motorcyclists will take to the road Sept. 30 for the first ever Breast Cancer Awareness Ride sponsored by Triple S Harley-Davidson of Morgantown.  All proceeds will benefit the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center at West Virginia University. 

The event has already received strong support from the local Ladies of Harley chapter.  They will be easy to spot in their matching pink breast cancer awareness t-shirts at the event’s registration table. The American Cancer Society will be on hand to distribute information to attendees, and Betty Puskar is also scheduled to be there.

“Even in the planning stages, the reaction we’ve had already is tremendous. We’ve seen an outpouring of support with many members of our local community coming out and asking how they can be involved,” said Beth Vickio, event/marketing coordinator for Triple S.  “It’s very moving to hear the personal stories and to see the emotion behind events like these.”

Registration is $10 and begins at 11:30 a.m. The ride starts at noon.  At 2 p.m. Triple S will host a cookout and raffle off several gift baskets filled with “pink” gifts and Harley-Davidson merchandise.

The Betty Puskar Breast Care Center at WVU’s Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center provides a warm, compassionate healthcare environment for women seeking breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
