Pittsburgh Man Joins Great Cycle Race to Help Kids with Cancer!

Shutdowns from coronavirus delayed the race, but you can still help!

April 1, 2020

The world is changing quickly as the coronavirus outbreak continues, and it seems like every day we hear of more and more events getting changed, postponed or cancelled.

BUT, it doesn't mean we can't still be helpers, like John!

For the last 6 years, John Lovra of Coraopolis has been riding in the Great Cycle Race to raise money for the Children's Cancer Research Fund. He started racing in honor of his family members who had beaten cancer, and continued in honor of his healthy grandkids!

This year, he was going to ride 300 miles during the month of June, with a fundraising goal of $5000!!

He was planning on hosting a Pancake Breakfast/Chinese Auction to help with the fundraising, but with the coronavirus shutdowns and restrictions, his event has been cancelled and now he has to get creative!

The Great Cycle Race has been postponed until September, John is still planning to ride his 300 miles, and needs your help to help the kids supported by the Children's Cancer Research Fund! 

John knows times are tough right now, but every dollar helps! To donate, click here!
