Ryan’s Ride is a unique athletic event for children ages 12 and under. Hundreds of children ride like champions on the same course as professional and elite amateur cyclists, pedaling to the finish line to thunderous applause. Each child is a champion – just for participating, they all receive a goodie bag, medal, and ice cream!
This annual event raises money for the cancer programs in our community by collecting pledges for the Livestrong Foundation.
A Message from John and Michele Phua:
Ryan was a healthy, charming little boy who made our home sparkle with excitement. He loved trains, playing the ukulele, and getting into trouble with his twin brother Matthew. At the age of two and a half, Ryan went to sleep one night and never woke up. Our family misses his smile and laughter in our lives and home every day.
We want to celebrate Ryan’s life and help make a difference in the lives of families who have lost a loved one or have a loved one who is battling cancer. Please honor Ryan’s short life with a donation in any amount to the Ryan Phua Memorial Fund, established with the LIVESTRONG Foundation. The fund will be used to expand local Bay Area funding opportunities for programs, including but not limited to community survivorship, palliative care and end of life care—programs that are very important to our family. Thank you for your generosity; we are so touched by the support of our community.
