Shane Stanford, lead organizer and founder of the "Ride for the Cure NM" event talks to KVSF-FM in Santa Fe. The interview begins at approximately 71:45.
Inspired by a dream of bikers in pink T-shirts, Shane Stanford started the "Ride for the Cure NM" event to raise money and awareness for cancer treatment and research. This year's event proceeds will benefit the UNM Cancer Center.
Shane spoke with Charles Maynard, KSFR-FM Santa Fe, about the event recently:
Shane talks to 2-KASA-TV:
This year's event is March 29 and 30. It will feature 2 simultaneous rides on March 29, one beginning in Albuquerque and the other beginning in Santa Fe. Both rides end in Madrid, where family-friendly festivities (open to the public) include a children's corner, live bands on 4 different stages, craft and vendor fair, and food. The festivities are free; the motorcycle ride is $20 and includes a rider's packet and a Sunday ride through the Sangre de Cristo mountains on March 30.
