Closer to Free Ride To Fight Cancer

WTNH– Closer to Free Riders Amy Fenollosa and Julia Nordgren talk about the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven’s 4th Annual Closer to Free Ride presented by Bank of America.

Amy is an alumni rider who recently lost her husband, Nat, to cancer. She talks about her ride experience, and encourages everyone to support the Closer to Free Ride.

The ride consists of three routes: 25, 62.5 or 100 miles and has been called the “best organized ride in Connecticut.” The ride is fully supported every 20 miles with rest stops that have food, beverages, amazing volunteers and bike tech support.

Everyone should register today to ride with as part of a team to help make a difference in the fight against cancer!

Registering is so simple, just to go to and follow the steps!

Folks who can’t ride should come out to the Yale Bowl on Ride Day to cheer on the survivors, patients, family members, etc. If you are on the route, make signs in your neighborhood, do anything to support these folks who are putting forth so much effort for cancer.

Ride Day is September 6th.  The ride starts at 7:00 am, with Opening Ceremonies at 6:45 am. For more information, call (203) 200-CTFR (2837) or go to
