AMHERST, N.Y. -- Saturday's 8,000 Ride for Roswell cyclists powered through the late morning rain.
"They all have a story to tell. They all have been touched. They're all here for a reason," said Roswell CEO and President Dr. Candace Johnson. "It's an overwhelmingly incredible sort of event."
It's those feelings that pushed Western New Yorkers to finish their 12, 30, 40, and 60 mile bike rides, despite the weather.
They are feelings that Tina Hassler, who rides with Team Momentum, is all too familiar with.
"A few years ago my grandm
other died from cancer, I thought that was hard, then two years ago, my mom died from cancer," Hassler said.
