Hunneman Cares – NAI Hunneman Executive Pedals to Support Cancer Research in Memory of Friend

Cathy bike ride 2On July 8th NAI Hunneman Executive Vice President Cathy Minnerly will participate in the Prouty Ride, a 100-mile bike race that takes place in Hanover, NH. The proceeds from the event benefit the Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC), one of the finest cancer research and treatment facilities in the country. Any donation to the NCCC directly supports NCCC researchers and clinicians who are working on innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and hopefully, one day, cure cancer. They also support important patient services that would otherwise not be funded.

For Minnerly, this years’ ride marks her 12th time participating in the Prouty to support a cause that is near and dear to her heart. The last three rides have been especially important to her as she done the ride in honor of her best friend Sarah who fought and sadly lost a courageous battle with Stage 4 Lung Cancer in April of 2015.

“Sarah was a strong person and an even stronger fighter,” said Minnerly. “It is my honor to call her my best friend and it is in her honor and memory of our friendship that I will complete my 12th Prouty Ride. I will ride harder, stronger, and am even more determined this year to fundraise to fight this horrible disease.”

The Norris Cotton Cancer Center has raised over $23 Million through the Prouty and continues its endeavor to find cures. If you would like to support Cathy Minnerly and this wonderful cause you can do so by clicking on the following link.
