Event Details & New Enhancements
The Prouty Team is hard at work bringing back The Prouty this year, and we have run into a few challenges that have caused some changes for this year's event (like our Check In format!). We will continue to add details to this page to help you navigate Prouty Weekend! Please reach out to us with questions at info@TheProuty.org or 603-646-5500.

PROUTY E-BIKE PROGRAM FOR PATIENT AND SURVIVORS
Thanks to the generosity of Specialized, Dartmouth Cancer Center patients and survivors can use an E-bike (electric bike) for the Prouty on Saturday, July 9 free of charge. Interested participants are asked to speak to their physician to get approval to participate prior to signing up.
Space is limited. Applications must be submitted by July 1, 2022. Please note: participating cyclists must wear a helmet during their ride.
Program participants can pick-up their E-bike the morning of July 9 at Richmond Middle School at the Specialized tent. The bike will be fitted and adjusted on-site at the Specialized tent. Participants must bring a helmet.
Honoring Willem Jewett
The Specialized e-bike program was the inspiration of Willem Jewett, an inspirational Prouty cyclist and supporter. It is because of Willem’s passion and dedication to the Prouty that this program is possible.
Due to supply issues, we will only be able to offer unisex and youth participant, and unisex volunteer t-shirts this year. We plan to have ladies shirts back in 2023. Thank you for your understanding!
