Save the Date for 2015: Saturday, September 19th
The Gran Fondo (the Great Ride) raises money for local cancer patients: a gas card for the dad who can't afford to drive to treatment, a wig for the woman who's just lost her hair or a gift card for the neighbor who can't afford his medicine.
Participants choose from several fun events--walking, cycling, horseback riding or a color fun run. The event begins at the Walla Walla Community College Dietrich Dome and ends with a free Oktoberfest lunch for all participants.
More than 620 people came together for the 2014 event, raising over $32,000 for the Cancer Special Needs Fund. For more photos from the event, check out the Providence St. Mary Foundation Facebook page.
