Join the Pedaling for Payson Event and Help Support Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care Patients and Families

On Saturday, September 15, join cycling enthusiasts from around the State at the 13th annual Pedaling for Payson fundraising event. Monies raised will support Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care’s most vulnerable patients by providing them with support from a nurse navigator — a staff member who helps patients find the medical, community and financial assistance they need to get quick and effective treatment and to calm their anxieties.

The event is being held at Elm Brook Park in Hopkinton and includes a variety of rides to choose from ranging from 16 to 77 mile rides, and an adventurous mountain bike ride. The routes will take cyclists through picturesque parts of New Hampshire and include rest stops featuring food and beverages. Upon completion of the ride, participants are invited to enjoy a barbeque lunch, refreshments and live entertainment at Elm Brook Park.

A Trek FX3 road bike donated by S&W Sports valued at over $600 will be raffled off.

Raffle tickets are $5 each or three for $10. Only 750 tickets will be sold, and the drawing will be held on September 15. All proceeds from the bike raffle will benefit Pedaling for Payson. Ticket holders do not need to be present to win. Tickets can be purchased online at pedalingforpayson.org or by calling Concord Hospital Trust at (603) 227-7162.

Two pre-ride events are being held throughout the summer. The first is ‘Bike Night on the Big Screen’, June 7 at Red River Theatres in Concord. Tickets are $10 and include the feature film Reveal the Path, beer tasting courtesy of New Hampshire Distributors, Inc. and Litherman’s Limited Brewery, tasty treats provided by O Steaks & Seafood and Vibes Gourmet Burgers. There will be trivia and door prizes given away during the evening. Tickets can be purchased online at redrivertheatres.org/2018/04/reveal-the-path or at the Box Office.

The second pre-ride event is the ‘Who Do You Ride For’ evening, August 1 at the Payson Center for Cancer Care. Guests can share their Pedaling for Payson story, grab some refreshments, check out bike and equipment demos from S&W Sports and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow cyclists, sponsors and Payson Center staff. Admission is free and those wishing to attend can RSVP at ch-trust.org.
