The intrepid cyclists of the CTSI Research Riders took to the streets of Western New York to raise money for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. The team of 11 CTSI employees, friends and family members raised $4,060.

The Riders joined 7,740 other cyclists who collectively raised $5.2 million for innovative cancer research programs and services for cancer patients to enhance their quality of life. Inaugurated in 1996, the Ride For Roswell has become one of the largest charity cycling events in North America

Team captain Timothy Murphy, MD, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Medicine and director of the Clinical and Translational Institute, said, “The Ride for Roswell is an inspiring event that raises funds for research that has a huge impact in preventing, understanding and treating cancer.”

Joining Murphy on the route were: CTSI Financial Officer Erin Bailey; Clinical Research Facilitator Jennifer Delmerico, her husband Alan, daughter Alice and, making his debut this year, son Patrick; MD/PhD student Mary Gallo; Kyle Mann, Jennifer Smith and Patti Rybi of the UB Office of Research Compliance; and Christopher Roth.
