Steve & Jeanne are planning on riding the Prouty again this year, with hopes of completing the 100-mile route on our tandem. It's going to be a stretch, as it's been several years since we've been able to ride that far, but if the weather cooperates, we hope to do the entire route.
Sadly, Steve's sister's husband was diagnosed with cancer this year and died within just a few months. We'll be keeping him in mind as we ride, along with the other friends and family who have been afflicted. If you cannot join us in Hanover, please help by donating to the effort to find new treatments and cures.
What follows is the canned, but compelling message provided by the Prouty organizers:
This year, we will be participating in The Prouty along with thousands of our fellow community members who will bike, walk, row, golf and more to raise money for Dartmouth Cancer Center. Together, we will go all in to end cancer.
More than one third of all people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetimes.* It’s a universal problem that touches everyone, including the most important people in our lives. That’s why we have united as a Prouty team to fundraise for cutting-edge cancer research and crucial patient support services at the Cancer Center.

- Make a gift by clicking the ‘donate’ button to help us reach our goal. Or you can click an individual's name to donate to their personal fundraising efforts.
All funds raised will help fund innovative researchers and clinicians who are dedicated to finding ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. Prouty funds also provide meaningful patient and family support services that would otherwise be unfunded—such as support groups, massage, art therapy programs, transportation and grocery assistance, and more.
Thank you for your support!
Together we are changing lives. Together we will end cancer.
