The 26th Annual Prouty Bike Ride & Challenge Walk

February 7, 2007

We're happy to announce that the Prouty website ( is live and open for registration. The 26th Annual Prouty Century Ride & Challenge Walk will take place on Saturday, July 14, so grab your friends, family and co-workers and mark your calendars to bike 25, 50 or 100 miles or walk 5, 10, 15, or 20k to raise money for cancer research and patient services at Norris Cotton Cancer Center.

NEW START/FINISH LOCATION! Due to permanent construction at Dartmouth Medical School we needed to find a new home for the Prouty. We're happy to say that Prouty Headquarters is moving just 1.3 miles north on Route 10 to the Richmond Middle School. Parking at the new site is limited so we are providing shuttles from the Dewey Field & Thompson Arena parking lots to whisk you to the Middle School. We're excited about the possibilities this new location presents and we hope you'll continue your tradition of generous participation as together we move The Prouty forward! (Check out the new Richmond School site.)

Family Registration has been improved. Registering your family this year should be a snap. As a family you'll share a fundraising website, while each member of your family will be searchable by donors and listed on the team page (if you're part of team). Make sure to click Families Register Here when you see the registration options and you'll be on your way. Note: Under this new system there may be up to a one day delay until families can access their website to start fundraising. You'll get an email when it's ready. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact our web-wizard Michelle Schembri at or 800-226-8744.

A $1,500,000 Goal!!

By raising an amazing $1.25 million in 2006 you far exceeded last year's goal but we can't stop there. So thank you in advance for giving it your all again this year. And thanks to The Byrne Foundation for leading the way: they're making a $50,000 donation to get us started!
