The Watson Neuroscience Foundation is proud to become a sponsor of the RIDEYELLOW Charity Bike Ride.
RIDEYELLOW is a charity bike ride held annually on the Saturday before Father's Day. It was founded in 2007 by Ann White-Spunner and Mary Trufant to raise awareness of cancer and to draft grassroots support for their mission of inspiring and empowering people affected by cancer.
Since its inception, RIDEYELLOW has donated over $300,000 to various cancer charities. In 2012 the combined efforts of 750 riders and 225 volunteers raised $70,000 which was donated to Camp Rap-A-Hope, USS Hope, Livestrong, Camp Odyssey and Covenant Hospice.
The 2013, 7th annual charity bike ride will take place in Bay Minette, Alabama on Saturday, June 15th.
Dr. Shawn Clark explained:
"We're proud to be sponsors of the RIDEYELLOW charity bike ride. It's an opportunity for us to give back to the community by helping raise awareness and raise money for charity organizations while also raising awareness of the need to wear helmets when cycling."
"Our work with concussion testing focuses on ways to minimize the damage caused by head trauma and prevent concussions. Events like the RIDEYELLOW charity bike ride help us raise awareness of the benefits of wearing proper helmets during sporting activities."
