The 31st Annual Prouty will take place Friday and Saturday, July 13th and 14th. With five cycling options, five walking events, and four rowing selections, the Prouty has plenty of ways for you to pitch in and help battle cancer. Continuing a rewarding trend, VBT will be well-represented in our support of the Prouty for the fourth year in a row.
The Prouty began in 1982 when four nurses from the Norris Cotton Cancer Center rode 100 miles through central New Hampshire in recognition of their patient, Audrey Prouty. A true inspiration, Audrey displayed great strength and courage in her nine year battle with ovarian cancer.
The original Prouty ride managed to raise 4,000 for cancer research at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center. This year’s ride has already raised over $1 million that will go toward clinical cancer research and to patient supportive services that are otherwise unfunded.
The best news is, there’s still time to register or donate! So, join VBT and thousands of others on July 13th and 14th in supporting a very important local cause. Come Prouty!
