19 Oct ButtonHole at the Inaugural “Hoover Ride for Hope”
Enzo was super happy to be able to supply chamois cream to an excellent cause. The Hoover Hope Foundation, a foundation named in the honor of Liam Hoover who, at age 12, lost his battle with brain cancer in 2005. Out of the sadness of his loss, Liam’s friends and family rallied around each other and the foundation was born.
For the past 7 years, the Hope Foundation has held their “Hoover Run for Hope” (held this year on November 5th, click here to register), a 5k run/walk that helps raise money towards the treatment and research of pediatric cancer.
This year, The Hoover Hope Foundation mixed it up. Earlier this month they held their Inaugural Hoover Ride for Hope, a 20, 40 and 60 mile bike ride through Williamson County, Tennessee. The ride was a great success, with 169 riders participating and helping raise $6300 which in turn will go to support their mission of pediatric cancer research (through St. Jude) and monetary aid for frequently unrecognized needs of families of pediatric cancer patients (through an endowment established for the Angel Fund at the Monroe Carell Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt). Enzo proudly provided chamois cream for the riders, a very small contribution to a very large cause. Enjoy the photo’s provided by Liam’s father, Brad below.
