THANK YOU Ride Across Maryland


Ride Across Maryland
The 10th Annual Dick Gelfman's Ride Across Maryland was held over the first weekend of June. The 3-day/2-night event was an incredible success!

Komen Maryland is thrilled that RAM has once again exceeded all expectations. RAM topped what was raised last year by $100,000 with a total pledged donation of $300,000. What a great achievement! Dick Gelfman added an additional $1.00 to bring the total pledge donation to an astounding $300,001. This brings RAM’s cumulative contribution to Komen Maryland over the past 10 years to over $2 million!

THANK YOU to Dick Gelfman, all RAM organizers, participants, sponsors, supporters and donors! We are honored that RAM has once again chosen the Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure as the beneficiary of their tireless efforts and continue to hold the rank of our largest 3rd party event in Maryland and possibly the entire country!
