ToWanda Bike NC: Not Just Another Charity Ride

get more from BRO

Charity rides abound these days—it seems like everyone is cycling for a cause. But few rides get as personal and profound as the  ToWanda Bike NC ride for Wanda Redmond. For 18 years, Wanda has served as a hospice nurse in Asheville, N.C., providing comfort to dying patients in their final days. Now, Wanda is fighting for her own life, battling colon cancer for the second time.

Two friends and fellow hospice nurses, Nina Snoddy and Michelle Knight, decided to ride 500 miles across North Carolina to support her, and every single penny goes directly to Wanda. They completed the ride on Saturday and have raised $8,400 so far…just a few hundred short of their $9,000 goal.
