Cancer Navigators Ride to be held July 16
On July 16, bikers and spectators from across northwest Georgia plan to gather for the Seventh Annual Cancer Navigators Ride, a reflective, 60-mile ride in honor and memory of those touched by cancer.
The annual motorcycle ride is held in memory of Darlene Bagley, a Cancer Navigators patient who died at the age of 62 after a four-year battle with breast and ovarian cancer.
Buddy Bagley, Darlene’s husband, founded the ride with his wife. He said he rides to remember and celebrate the life of his late wife. The annual event is his way to bring together those whose lives have been touched by cancer and to give back through a donation to Cancer Navigators.
“When my wife first got cancer, Cancer Navigators was a great inspiration and a great help to me,” Bagley said. “They helped me in every way.”
Last year, $9,000 was raised and donated to Cancer Navigators, Inc. from the ride. Every year Bagley sets an ambitious fundraising goal, which he has increased and achieved each of the past six years.
The event is planned for Saturday, July 16 at Logtown on South Main Street in Adairsville. Registration begins at 9 a.m. The ride begins at 10 a.m.
The cost is $20 per bike and $10 for passengers. Lunch is provided.
