Prairie Rivers Trail Ride generated $12K to help cancer patientsPhysical therapy seems like something someone would need after a bad fall or a car wreck, but not as part of cancer treatment.
It is, however, something cancer patients need. The disease is brutal. The treatments are no picnic, either. Cancer patients need to build up their strength after enduring all of that.
A group of bicyclists recently raised money to help cancer patients get moving again while at the same time honoring one of their pedaling partners.
The recent Prairie Rivers Trail Ride honored Connie Johnson, of Fort Dodge. She is an avid bicyclist and breast cancer survivor.
The Aug. 12 ride attracted 180 participants.
