Ride Hard Breathe Easy 2019

Ride Hard Breathe Easy
Until Go Time!!!
  1. Our mission is to "End the stigma and suffering for lung cancer patients and caregivers, in memory of Kathleen Matthews".
  1. The Ride Hard Breathe Easy Classic is a 1,800+ mile bike ride, in memory of Kathleen Matthews, to raise awareness and money for lung cancer.  The ride starts on Thursday, August 22 at Guy's Bicycles in Southampton, PA.  The route will then go through New Jersey, Upstate New York, Cleveland, Columbus, OH, Maryland and finish on September 8 at Elkins Spark Fitness in Elkins Park, PA.  This year, survivor Terri Ann DiJulio and lung cancer surgeon, Dr. Charles Bakhos, will be joining the ride.  

  2. In addition, we will “Ride to the Moon” in November, by collecting 238,900 miles on our Ride Hard Breathe Easy Club on Strava

  3. We dedicate each day to someone impacted by lung cancer, like we've done the past two years. You will see an example of our dedication to Mom below.  Contact us at tribute@rhbe.org and we will recognize someone you love.  Click PHOTOS below to see tributes.
  4. Please contact me at john@rhbe.org if you want to ride, drive, or help, or if you have any questions.
    The money we raise during our rides over the past two years have focused on ending the stigma and early detection.  They specifically helped fund the Lung Cancer Alliance Screening Centers of Excellence program and education efforts, and two projects from The Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute that focused on the Genomics and Epidemiology of lung cancer in patients.  

    1. And finally, we added a new event this year called Wine Hard Breathe Easy.  This event was held on June 27th and included wine tasting, a silent auction and some live auction items.  We were joined by 120 people and raised over $25,000 for lung cancer patients at Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple Lung Center!
