2022 Ride for a Cure
October 2 @ 9:00 am
Local volunteers are inviting neighbors across Maine to honor cancer survivors and to help those facing the disease with Ride for a Cure, a Hancock-based ATV ride on Sunday, Oct. 2.
The event begins at the Acadia Area ATV’ers clubhouse at 3 Wyman Road in Hancock. Participants are encouraged to decorate their machines with pink and/or cancer awareness items as well as decorate bras which are then voted on by peers to determine who has the best decorations. The benefit ride is approximately 80 miles of
beautiful scenery with new friendships and memories created along the way.
In the past two years, we have raised over $8,000 which was split between the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center and the American Cancer Society. This year, we have selected three nonprofit cancer centers: the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource
Center in Ellsworth, Christine B. Foundation in Bangor and Team Hailey Hugs in Bethel.
Participants are encouraged to register in advance at https://RideforaCure2022.eventbrite.com. The ride is set for Sunday, Oct. 2, rain or shine. Registration begins at 8 a.m. at Acadia Area ATV’ers Club, 3 Wyman Road,
Hancock, and riders will depart at 9 a.m. on the Downeast Sunrise Trail. A stop is planned at Franklin Trading Post at 33 Blackwood Road, Franklin, where gas and snacks are available for purchase. The ride will continue to through the wind towers and blueberry barrens before stopping for lunch at Spectacle Pond and returning back to the clubhouse between 2:30 and 3:30.
