Because of you, we continue to make a huge difference in the fight against cancer, specifically Ovarian Cancer.    This year’s race was in

Honor of the Memory of Terry Lucinda Ivey, who lost her battle in Feb. 2014.   “With every crash of the waves and every beat of our hearts, We Feel

Your Tingle.”  Suzy Toronto

at each of our Gatherings.   Grateful Spotlight to the Firefighters’ Fire and Iron Motorcycle Club – Station 48 Pensacola, one of our Presenting Sponsors and

Escorts for a Memorial and Remembrance Ride to Perdido Pass Bridge in Loving Memory of our Fallen and In Honor of our Wounded Warrior Heroes

Our Board of Directors deserves to be in a Hall of Fame.  They have worked endless hours to ensure everything was together nicely for

our visitors, our locals and our survivors.   Thank you from the bottom of my heart, my board, my friends.  I love you dearly.
