Big Y Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge

Calhoun Ride

Eight of us from the club and three from the pro team participated in the inaugural Big Y Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge. There was a photo op with the coach and I will post a link to the pictures if they become available. It was raining during the opening inspirational speeches by Nancy Wyman, Jim Calhoun, Carolyn D. Runowicz, M.D. Director of The Carole and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center and others and at the start of the event, but the rain soon cleared during the ride and a great time was had by all. The Hartford Courant ran a story, Sunday June 10, 2007, capturing the event and a couple of snippets from us at the finish. Another story about the event in the Connecticut Post Online. You can find some pictures of Jim Calhoun with the pro team here. Thanks again to all who participated in this worthy cause and especially Nerac for making it possible for us to take part in the event.

    Great ride, beginning was tough but it mellowed out a bit toward the end. Very humid, great getting to ride with the pros.
