A little over a year ago, Andrew Hudon received the sad news that a good family friend had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. He did some research and quickly realized that this is a story that is played out all too often, with over 200,000 brain tumors diagnosed every year in the United States. Brain tumors do not recognize socio-economic, ethnic, or gender barriers.
Andrew felt the need to help somehow, and that laid the foundation for what would become The Ride To Live Tour. Andrew will leave his hometown of Lake George, New York on July 25th and pedal 1,100 miles traveling through all five New England States before arriving back in Lake George 10 days later.
Andrew has set a fundraising goal of $20,000, all of which will go to the National Brain Tumor Society, a national non-profit dedicated to funding innovative research initiatives and patient support.
Andrew has been training since the winter for his journey, logging over 4,000 miles already this season. His preparation has not been without incident, however. In April his training was interrupted by hernia repair surgery, and on July 9th he suffered a double fracture and dislocation of the index finger on his right hand. He underwent surgery to repair the hand and will now be riding the 1,100 miles with steel pins stabilizing the bones in his damaged finger.
Andrew’s route will bring him to Littleton on the afternoon of July 26th, and he will be departing on the morning of July 27th, bound for Rumford, ME. More information about the ride can be found and donations can be made at www.ridetolivetour.org .
Andrew can be reached via the website or at firstname.lastname@example.org
