Hometown Hero: Cancer Research Bike Tour

Hometown Hero

(WHTM) — Thursday’s hometown heroes are six cancer survivors riding for a cure.

Next week is the fourth annual Cancer Research Bike Tour. A group of bicyclists will be riding 100 miles raising money to support bladder and prostate cancer research at Johns Hopkins Medicine.

“We have it within our proximity and we are trying to raise funds to help that cause of finding a cure for these pernicious diseases,” Co-Organizer, Howard Ross said. “Here at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, we remain exceptionally grateful for the efforts of those participating in the Tour, including the six cancer survivors who have chosen to take on the challenge this year,” Dr. Ted DeWeese said. It is for them and for survivors everywhere that we continue to press onward, towards transforming today’s novel treatment possibilities into tomorrow’s potential cures.”
