All are welcome; we have Riders of all ages and experiences; our team hails from all over Ohio and many other states. We have team jerseys, t-shirts, team events, and training rides. Our mission is to celebrate the life of Stefanie, carry on her legacy of hope, and to raise as much money as we can to find a cure for ALL cancers.
