On a beautiful Saturday morning in June, the CTSI Research Riders put their collective pedal power to work for cancer research and treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. They were among some 8,000 bicyclists who participated in the 22nd annual Ride For Roswell, North America’s largest single-day cycling fundraiser.

To date, the Research Riders have raised $5,305 for the effort, contributing to the more than $4.6 million that was collected for the cancer institute. But it’s not too late to donate if you would like to add to that total. Go to the RPCI website to make a donation or call 716-THE-RIDE (843-7433).

The CTSI Research Riders team consists of: CTSI Director Timothy Murphy; Chief Financial Officer Erin Bailey and her husband Paul Bailey; Administrative Assistant AnnMarie Billen; Research Administrator Erin O’Byrne and her father Matt O’Byrne; Clinical Research Facilitator Jennifer Delmerico, her husband Alan and daughter Alice; MD/PhD student Mary Gallo; Jennifer Smith and Patti Rybi of the UB Office of Research Compliance; CTRC Facilities Manager Terry-Ann Smith and Christopher Roth.

“Roswell Park is a key partner in the University at Buffalo Clinical and Translational Science Institute,” said Murphy. “The Ride for Roswell is an inspiring community event that that is a privilege to be a part of. The funds raised go directly to a great cause.”
