Success! Dean Shirey, of Cancer Ride America, has officially reached his fundraising goal of $10,000 – actually; he has exceeded it by $180! For three long months, Dean has been traveling the perimeter of America to honor his brother, Terry, by raising funds (and awareness) for advancing cancer care and clinical trials research at our very own North Star Lodge.
On Monday, August 26th at around 10:30am, Dean will be riding back into Yakima accompanied by Darrin Cook, administrator of North Star Lodge, and other local motorcycle enthusiasts. There will be a brief ceremony to celebrate his fundraising victory and to also commemorate his brother who has served as his inspiration for Cancer Ride America. We thank Dean for his hard work – words cannot express just how appreciative we are.
We invite you to come out to the North Star Lodge campus to take part in congratulating Dean and welcoming him back home.
