Atamian VW and Honda Started A Reason to Ride bike-a-thon - A wonderful opportunity to support the fight against brain cancer

Online PR News – 16-November-2010 – – The Atamian Family, owners of Atamian Volkswagen & Honda, Inc. of Tewksbury, is a $2,500 sponsor of the 3rd annual “A Reason to Ride bike-a-thon presented by Fuddruckers” to support brain cancer care and research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. A Reason to Ride will kick off on Sunday, September 12th at the Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers at 8:00 a.m. and will take participants, including members of the Atamian family, through Danvers, Wenham, Ipswich, Essex, Gloucester and Topsfield.

“A Reason to Ride is a wonderful opportunity to support the fight against brain cancer,” said Atamian Volkswagen & Honda, Inc. President Reed Atamian. “Cancer affects nearly every household in one way or another, so it is important for my family to be involved with an event dedicated to beating the odds and finding a cure.”

A Reason to Ride bike-a-thon was started four years ago by cancer survivor Tom DesFosses who credits Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center’s Dr. Eric Wong with saving his life. Funds raised through A Reason to Ride will benefit Dr. Eric Wong’s Brain Tumor Fund.

“I am grateful that the community supports Beth Israel Deaconess' Brain Tumor research with such enthusiasm,” said A Reason to Ride Founder Tom DesFosses. “A Reason to Ride is a truly rewarding day to come together as a community, especially for survivors like myself.”
