"Thirty(!) years ago, four Cancer Center nurses rode 100 miles through New Hampshire’s White Mountains. They rode to honor their patient, Audrey Prouty and raised $4,000 for research at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center. For this year’s 30th Annual Prouty, 5,000 participants and 1,000 volunteers will come together in the Connecticut River Valley to pay tribute to the many, many people, like Audrey, who’ve battled cancer; and to continue the important work of bringing an end to cancer. Join your neighbors, friends and the community- come PROUTY!"
And my family will be there! My son's girlfriend Christine (and girlfriend is just not an adequate term!) is a physical therapist and tri-athlete who has participated in this event for a few years. She lost her own mom to cancer, so this event is dear to her heart. This year, she has managed to get a few more family members to ride along with her, at least for part of the way! If I am able, I will do the 3k walk in Hanover. And now we are a team - the "Hope Patrol."
If you would like to participate or donate to this cause, you can find Christine's page at
