FLYWHEEL CHARITY RIDE

As the end of September, Childhood Cancer Awareness month, comes to a close, please consider supporting Riprap Friends! 

We will be supporting kids fighting cancer at our annual Flywheel Charity Ride, with Kate Hickl and Jaimie Bailey, on Monday November 4th, at 10:30am at the Flywheel Chelsea Studio.

Every dollar will go directly to materials and activities for the children, and every minute of class will be inspiring and uplifting!

The name “Riprap Friends” comes from the word for a stone wall used to armor shorelines against water erosion. We will provide a metaphorical armor for pediatric cancer patients and their families against some of the often overlooked erosive characteristics of that disease: social, creative, and emotional isolation that can be a severe impediment to full recovery.

We understand that a child’s wellbeing depends on a variety of important factors, and among those factors is the child’s ability to be creative, intellectually stimulated, socially engaged, to have the opportunity to make meaningful choices in his or her day-to-day life, and most importantly, to have the support of family and friends during their medical treatment. Riprap intends to facilitate all of these things in the name of bettering the overall health of childhood cancer patients.
