Papa’s Ride for Dray was our 2020 campaign with two mission objectives: 1. Awareness building and 2. Raising funds!

 

Started, Sunday, August 2, 2020, departing from OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois (CHOI), Peoria, IL, and ending on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

 

The 60 day ride covered over 11,000 miles on the back of Papa’s Harley-Davidson. During this journey, Papa visited 60 RSM offices, 16 clients, and 11 of the leading children’s hospitals and cancer research centers, and many new friends, in the eastern half of the  U.S.
