The mission of the Ride Janie Ride Foundation is to provide direct financial assistance to Chicagoland area individuals facing financial hardship resulting from ongoing medical treatment for various types of cancer.

During this unprecedented time, we have been carefully considering the health, safety, and overall wellbeing of our community as we receive news about COVID-19. These are extremely challenging days for many, but we do believe that we will prevail together, our collective strength seeing us through this crisis. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Ride Janie Ride event to Sunday, August 9. If you have already purchased a ticket to ride with us in May, it will carry forward to the new date. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at rjr@ridejanieride.orgThank you for your continued loyalty, understanding, and support. 

For over a decade, the Ride Janie Ride Foundation has been bringing the community together for one common goal; to pay it forward.  What started as a way help to alleviate the financial burden of cancer treatments for our dear friend Janie Bawel, grew into an experience much larger than any of us could have imagined.  The annual event takes place on the first Sunday in May when thousands of participants come together to raise funds for nominiated recipients.

Since 2007, the Ride Janie Ride Foundation has benefited 65 recipients battling various types of cancer.  To nominate an individual in need, please visit our Nomination page.
