2008 Ride Across Maryland

Registration for the 2008 Ride Across Maryland is now open! RAM is heading once again to Ocean City to raise money to fight breast cancer. Please join RAM on May 31 to June 2, 2008 as they ride again into fundraising history. Over the past 7 years The Ride Across Maryland has donated almost $1.2 million to Komen Maryland. The Francis Scott Key Family Resort is now taking reservations for the 2008 Ride Across Maryland weekend event.

RAM is a motorcycle event: a group motorcycle ride from Central Maryland to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Not only is RAM a significant partner for our affiliate, it has also become a destination event for motorcyclists and others throughout the region. RAM provides vendors, music, activities, and food at the destination resort in Ocean City. A big draw for the participants is a gripping police escort across the bay bridge into Eastern Maryland and the compelling mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever.

The original RAM concept was a personal initiative for Dick to perform charitable work in the community that would involve all of his family through a hobby he is passionate about. His entire family remains actively involved in the event as well as an Advisory Council which is made up of close friends and colleagues who are equally devoted. RAM is successful because of the effort Dick has sustained and the renewed enthusiasm he generates annually. Komen Marylandhas been challenged to support the efforts of RAM in ways that have nurtured a growing relationship between the two organizations creating an event that is bigger because of the partnership than either of us could achieve alone.
