Saturday, April 14 2012 – Eleuthera, Bahamas
FloridaVelo’s honorary member, Jerome “Jerry” Pyfrom, participated at the Ride for Hope in the Bahamas. Jerry’s commitment to make a difference was evident when he came up to Florida to spend a week training and getting ready to participate in this year’s Ride for Hope Bahamas. We are proud of Jerry, and we know his leadership will encourage others to make a difference as he has done!
The Ride for Hope Bahamas was co-founded by Stephen Holowesko and Susan Holowesko Larson. The seven year old bike-a-thon held each Spring on the island of Eleuthera is the flagship fund raiser for the Bahamas Hope Foundation. BHF’s goal is to help channel resources to critical programs and initiatives in The Bahamas, which enhance the treatment and care of persons battling cancer and which advance research into the cause and possible cure for cancer. Without exception, every dollar raised by participants is applied to program support.
