Calhoun Rides Again

The Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge Ride will be held on Sunday, June 8. The ride benefits The Carole and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Connecticut Health Center, as well as Coaches vs. Cancer. The event will include bike rides of 10, 25 and 50 miles, will start and finish in Simsbury and include a post-ride summer barbeque with a live band. Coach Calhoun is a cancer survivor and will participate in the 50-mile ride.

Over 500 riders are expected to ride with Calhoun this year, and hundreds of volunteers are expected to lend their support. To register for the ride as a single rider or as a team, or to donate to Calhounā€™s ride, interested parties should visit the CIGNA-Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge Ride website at http://www.calhounride.com .

There is a $30 fee to register as a rider and a minimum fundraising requirement of $200 per rider. All riders will receive a gift bag containing a ride shirt, a pair of Crocs and other items as a thank you for participation. There will also be activities for families as well as a post-ride summer barbeque with live music.
