August 11, 2011
Bikers from throughout New England will ride for a reason - helping scientists and patients in the fight against cancer - when they hit the roads of New Hampshire and Vermont Aug. 21st for the 9th annual Green Mountain Motorcycle Ride.
More than just a way to enjoy a nice ride through beautiful countryside, the event will give bikers the opportunity to support emerging/new cancer research and important patient services at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
This year's ride begins at Granite State Harley-Davidson in Lebanon, NH, and concludes at the Cancer Center, also in Lebanon. After completing the 140-mile course, bikers will be treated to a post-ride celebration that includes barbecue, door prizes, raffle drawings, and live music.

These dollars also fund quality-of-life patient services such as massage, writing-for-healing workshops, support groups, and patient libraries.
