CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Money raised by the 5th Annual Franklin County Century Ride has been donated to help support local women facing breast cancer.
The ride, which was held on June 20th by the Franklin County Cyclists, raised more than $10,000.
July 28, members of the Franklin County Cyclists donated the proceeds at a check presentation held at the shade pavilion at Grove Cancer Center's Healing Garden. The shade pavilion was made possible with the proceeds of last year's Franklin County Century Ride.
Laura Umbrell, nurse navigator at the Rhonda Brake Shreiner Women's Center and Sharon Brosious, executive director of the Cumberland Valley Breast Care Alliance were each presented with $5,000 checks. The money will go towards educating and supporting local women in their fights against breast cancer.
More than 227 bicyclists from as far away as Canada and Utah participated in the Franklin County Century Ride.
