Feel Good on the :50's with Wicker and Wilde - each weekday morning at 6:50a, 7:50a and 8:50a.  We share stories that make you Feel Good!

One of our listeners, George Gagnon, shared with us on-air that he's getting ready for the Great Cycle Challenge. George will ride in support of Children’s Cancer Research Fund and in honor of his son, Geoffrey, who passed away at the tender age of 5. 

George, who lives in Mechanicsville, is planning to ride 600 miles and raise $10,000 during the month of September for the 6th annual Great Cycle Challenge USA. Founded in 2015, Great Cycle Challenge USA has grown to become one of the biggest cycling events in the country. In just five years, over 230,000 riders from 50 states have ridden 18 million miles, raising more than $24 million for research and the development of better treatments and cures for childhood cancer.

“Over 15,000 American children are diagnosed with cancer every year and, sadly, 38 children die every week,” said John Hallberg, Chief Executive Officer at Children’s Cancer Research Fund. “Thanks to riders like George, we’re fueling groundbreaking research to save lives and give kids the brighter future they deserve.”
