Emily Raises $51,210 for Cancer Research

If you are wondering if Emily met her birthday fundraising goal, the answer is Yes! The total was $52,210!

The money she raised was donated to the Philadelphia Ride to Conquer Cancer which benefits the Penn Abramson Cancer Center. We attended the 150-mile bike ride event a few weeks ago and discovered that Emily was the top fundraiser! Thank you so much to everyone who donated – the funds will continue to support the T-cell therapy and other cancer research! Here are a few photos from the event:
