ROCK RIVER CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION INC
April 30, 2011

I read the recently posted review regarding the individual who insinuates that one person is somehow single handedly raised over 2 Million dollars. It's a shame that personal egos and politics can tarnish the extremely hard work of the Rock River HOG Chapter. Our annual event, Ridin' to a Cure, has raised close to $4 million in the last 16 years for a cause that can and does touch every family, breast cancer. All net proceeds go directly to the Rock River Cancer Research Foundation. The moneys granted are explicitly ear marked for breast cancer research and stay in southeastern Wisconsin.
As happens with any volunteer organization that is worth the effort, the passions and commitments required to make it work, usually are driven by strong personal opinions. Those strong opinions can, of course, often do cause some conflicts. As is normal, there are two sides to every story. I only hope that anyone reading reviews about this foundation and it's goal, realize that hundreds of volunteers, not any one individual, have put a great amount of sweat and effort into making this foundation's mission a successful one.
