Why we do this

In August 2011, our family was camping in NH during one of our most memorable and enjoyable vacations.  I recall that I found myself thinking - this is a really special time.

Things changed dramatically. Three months after that vacation we learned Evan was very sick.  Not just sick, we found out there was not a thing that could be done for him medically to change the prognosis.  

So now we ride 163 miles in the Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for DIPG research at Dana-Farber in Evan's name.  We NEEDED to do something to make sense of it all, to find a way to change the outcome for future children.  We have been riding since 2013 as Team Evan's Crew.

​​​​​Our hope is that each year will bring new insight into this pediatric brain tumor and soon there will be a REAL option in treatment for other families.

Support DIPG Research

From Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

DIPG is an intractable disease that urgently requires novel treatment strategies. To expedite the translation of promising therapies to patient bedsides, our expert investigators have launched ambitious research initiatives that illuminate the biology of this difficult malignancy. Your longstanding support has been critical to shepherding their research from their earliest pilot studies to clinical trials. On behalf of our patients and their families, thank you for helping to make this important work possible. 

When you need to do something to make sense of it all.... you ride a bike.
