Reid's Ride TIna Kethopulos and Lahey/AGH Staff

In memory – This year we dedicate the ‘Wellness Tent’ in honor and memory of Tina Ketchopulos, FOB and beloved friend, loved by many and missed by all who knew her. Tina first invited me to take part in this fundraiser in 2011, for which I am most grateful. Tina was a ‘daily breath of fresh air and sunshine,’ always smiling and ready to lend an ear or a hand, supporting many community events and charities.

‘Motivated by Love. Guided by Spirit.’  Why They Ride – to continue Reid’s Dream to end cancer.

AYA Facts:

  • Every 7 minutes an AYA is diagnosed with cancer in the U.S.
  • Cancer is the #1 disease related cause of death among AYA
  • Clinical trials are one of the most important tools for bringing improved and new therapies to cancer patients, but there haven’t been enough clinical trials for AYA cancer patients to make any meaningful progress in survival rate.

You Can Make a Difference! Join the Wave!
