3rd Annual Memorial Motorcycle Rally Fundraiser to Benefit Cancer Research
Outlaw BBQ, Route 1, Foxboro, Mass.
Registration 8 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Friends of the late Anne LaRosa are organizing a memorial motorcycle rally, scheduled for Saturday, August 4, 2007 beginning and ending at the Outlaw B-B-Q in Foxboro. This is an event with three goals: to honor Annie’s memory, to benefit the Gynecologic Oncology Research Fund at Caritas St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center (where Annie was treated) and to raise awareness about ovarian cancer.
In the Fall of 2003, Annie was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. At 46, Annie had never been sick a day in her life, and now she had to have surgery, followed by multiple cycles of chemotherapy which continued until 2005. Annie fought a long and brave battle but she succumbed to this disease and passed away, surrounded by friends and family, on September 25, 2005, at only 48 years of age.
Please join us at the Outlaw B-B-Q, Route 1, Foxboro, Massachusetts on August 4, 2007 (rain date August 18, 2007). The motorcycles will begin assembling at 8:00 a.m. through 10:00 a.m. When the bikes return, there will be a pig/chicken roast, with all the “fixins,” along with raffles, auctions, vendors, biker games provided by Grumpy’s Games, and live bands to entertain you. The cost is $20.00 per person. But, you don't have to ride to join us. Come and show your support and have a great time!!!
If you can’t join us and prefer to simply make a donation, please make out your check to "Annie’s Dash" and mail it to: Annie’s Dash, P.O. Box 86, Walpole, Massachusetts, 02081. Also, if you would like to donate an item or gift certificate for our raffles and/or auctions, please contact me and we can make arrangements to pick up the donation.
All profits from Annie’s Dash are being donated, in her name and memory, to Caritas St. Elizabeth’s Gynecologic Oncology Research Fund and are, therefore, tax-deductible.
Please support this event - ovarian cancer is a killer. Funding is needed to improve our ability to diagnose this disease at an earlier stage. Additionally, we need to teach women to be more aware of the disease’s symptoms, and to be proactive in getting tested and treated early.
Our Run has been endorsed by Dr. Michael A. Steller, Annie’s physician and Director of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology of Caritas St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center.
