Bike for Cancer Care – Team Ozzie
A personal note from our President, Paul Beichert:
September 16th could be like any other Sunday. We could sleep in, have breakfast with our families, or maybe get some yard work done to prepare us for winter. I’d like to take a moment to tell you where my family and I will be. Team Ozzie will be riding in the 9th annual Bike for Cancer Care to benefit the Rosemary Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund.
Team Ozzie, for those who are not aware, was founded in 2009 when our father and company founder, Ozzie Beichert, was diagnosed with cancer. We came to realize first hand through our father’s battle that while he was fortunate enough to have adequate resources to cover the expense of treatment, there are many others that fall into financial difficulty. For some families, it’s having to make a choice between having enough food in the fridge or enough gas in the car to get to a doctors appointment. It’s those small things that we often take for granted. The Rosemary Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund provides a helping hand, through much needed gas cards and Hannaford gift cards for groceries to families who need them.
Many of you have supported Team Ozzie at the Rosemary Gruner Bike for Cancer Care in the past and I ask that you support this worthy cause once again. You can ride, donate funds, or support one of our team riders.
We also created a special page on our website which includes who we are dedicating our ride too, links to donate online, sign up to ride, or even download a form to have a memorial mile marker made in memory or in honor of a loved one.
Let’s make a difference together.
As always, the Beichert family and I thank you for your continued support,
Paul Beichert, President
