Ride For A Child, (RFAC) our biggest annual fundraiser was featured in the news! One of this year’s Ride for a Child honored children, Heaven, and father/daughter riders, Gregg and Mary Holt, riding for #TeamHeaven share their stories with Jenny Hansson in front of a big camera. We’re so proud of 7 year old Heaven for, among many things,Â conquering her nerves and sitting down to an interview with a camera man, news woman, and a bunch of adults watching. All of her answers came from the heart.
What is Ride for a Child? Twenty-one years ago, Candlelighters family member Dick Hartung rode in Cycle Oregon in honor of his daughter, Jill. During his ride, he started a fundraising appeal that went out to his family, friends, and business associates. The ride was a huge success. Not only did he challenge himself and conquer the week of riding, he honored Jillâ€™s life by enriching the lives of other families impacted by childhood cancer. In 2002, Dick raised over $12,000. Now, with a goal of $195,000 in 2022, Ride For A Child has raised millions for Candlelighters For Children With Cancer and continues to be Candlelightersâ€™ largest fundraiser of the year.
