PPRAC was organized in 1983 by Bob Freed, an Allentown schoolteacher (read more). There have been 15 rides since then and we are currently planning our 16th ride for 2013. We would like to share with you our thoughts and a few photos from some of the previous rides.
- 2011 Ride - Elkins, WV to Palmerton, PA
PPRAC XV was covered over 500 hilly miles, and had more rain than the previous 3 years combined. But spirits of the group remained high as together raised over $150,000 to help in the fight against cancer.
- 2009 Ride - Burlington, VT to Palmerton, PA
PPRAC XIV was a 540 mile ride from Burlington, VT to Palmerton, PA. The group raised over $152,000. The total money raised since 1983 on 14 rides now exceeds $1 million.
- 2007 Ride - Erie, PA to Palmerton, PA
PPRAC finished another successful ride in 2007. We raised over $150,000! PPRAC is a six-day biennial ride raising funds for the American Cancer Society and Dream Come True.
- 2005 Ride - Waynesboro, VA to Palmerton, PA
The 2005 ride a great success.
PPRAC completed their twelfth bi-annual Ride Against Cancer, riding 500+ miles through the hills of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The team of over 35 riders out-did themselves this year and raised $10,000 more than their goal amount!
