Rally for the Valley
Te conventional medicine used to battle cancer is always improving, but if you’ve known anyone in radiation or chemotherapy (and who hasn’t?) you know the treatment itself does a number on people. That’s where Rally for the Valley comes in, raising funds for programs that ease the side effects of cancer treatment with massage, acupuncture, counseling and support groups.
With proceeds going to the Young Cancer Center at Valley View Hospital, the Rally features a 24.5 mile bike ride, a kids parade, and a four-mile walk through Glenwood Springs, culminating with a party in Sayre Park.
You can walk or ride with a $20 donation. Festivities kick off at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13. Learn more at www.ralleyforthevalley.org
