Ride, Run or Ramble – Willa’s Wheels
What and Why?
Pick a ride, run a triathlon, or walk. The idea is to put yourself on the line, push your limits, honor sweet Willa’s memory, and support Ray of Hope Cancer Foundation. We ask that you wear a Willa’s Wheels jersey for your rides, runs or rambles, and set the goal of raising at least $250. Consider making a donation in the memory of a loved one, or honoring a survivor of cancer.
Willa’s Wheels also serves as a great team- building opportunity for corporate teams. Contributions are tax deductible, and there are corporate benefit opportunities available as well.
When and Where?
You select the day and time that works for you and your team. You can join an existing race, or organize your own. The Ray of Hope Cancer Foundation will help you get started.
Since its inception, Willa’s Wheels has raised more than $100,000 each year. Every donation can make a difference for someone undergoing cancer treatment—from putting food on the table to helping pay rent or a mortgage.
After a yearlong battle with cancer, little Willa passed away peacefully in June of 2008—just shy of her fourth birthday. Willa was gifted with a radiant smile, bright imagination and true zest for life. But most of all, she was a gift to everyone around her. She loved her family, princesses and spending time in the mountains near Leadville, Colorado.
We’d love to hear from you.
