Callanan employees, customers, and construction partners have raised over $70,000 in the six years they have hosted the event. The NYOH Community Cancer Foundation has been the beneficiary of the fundraising proceeds for the past three years.
“Callanan strives to be able to support the community in which we live and work. We are proud to come together as a team to help support this worthy cause from an idea born out of supporting one of our own, Mike Walsh,” said Don Fane, President of Callanan Industries.
NYOH Community Cancer Foundation’s mission is to alleviate financial hardship for community members diagnosed and living with cancer, allowing them to focus on treatment and improve their quality of life. “On behalf of the patients we serve, we cannot thank Callanan enough for their continued generosity of hosting this fun summer event. We are grateful for their support in helping someone with cancer in our area pay for their month’s rent, get to a life-saving medical appointment, or eat a nutritious meal with their family,” said Rachel Hye Youn Rupright. “The Ride with Mike event hosted and organized by Callanan shows that by coming together, our community is greater than cancer.”
NYOH Community Cancer Foundation is the philanthropic arm of New York Oncology Hematology and serves Greater Capital Region residents undergoing cancer treatments.
