"My name is Gerry Ruvo and I am a second year participant in The Ride. I ride for my older brother Frank who is a cancer survivor and for everyone touched by this terrible disease."

Gerry continues to take part in The Ride as he is inspired by Frank's amazing attitude, who had said from the day he was diagnosed that he was going to beat cancer, and he never looked back. He rides so that everyone in his life will be inspired to commit to beating this disease. He rides because it has become a part of who he is.

To successfully fundraise, Gerry reaches out to his immediate and extended network. Gerry is proud of the support from his generous friends and family who he connects with through email and his personal page. Gerry also enjoys cooking up fundraising ideas. "Our Family business’ (Les Delices Lafrenaie) advertises the event with posters and displays. Last year we created a special pound cake and all proceeds went to the cause. We sold a ton!"

Gerry has big fundraising plans for 2014 and is encouraging everyone to donate to this important cause.
