WWW.SAMMYRIDES.COM "GRANDPARENTS RIDING FOR THE HEALTH OF GRANDCHILDREN"
SammyRides is a project sponsored by Team Will, a non-profit organization made up of cyclists who volunteer their time and resources to support research, and help families whose children are currently undergoing cancer treatment.

In 2009, two couples from Greater Sun City Center, Florida (GSCC) considered the possibility of bicycling 2,400 miles across the Southern Tier of the United States in order to raise awareness of the many thousands of children who are being diagnosed every day with some form of Pediatric Cancer. One of these couples was Lois and Mike Libenson, who lost their precious granddaughter, Sammy, at the age of 9 to Osteosarcoma. From their dreams, SammyRides was born. Volunteers from all walks of life who are now living in a 55 and older community in GSCC, Florida, have banded together and expanded those ideas into reality.

Our slogan has become "Grandparents Riding for the Health of Grandchildren". SammyRides' volunteers are all senior citizens with decades of life experiences. We are using our talents, energy, and determination to make a difference for our children and grandchildren. Through our volunteer efforts we will bring awareness and funds to the effort to eliminate pediatric cancer.
