Over the past 19 years, dedicated participants of the Granite State Quest have raised more than $1.8 million. Thanks to generous in-kind donations, 100% of the funds raised by the riders has gone directly to pediatric cancer research and patient care at MassGeneral.
Starting and finishing at The Timberland Company in Stratham, New Hampshire, riders will bicycle 35 miles along the beautiful NH coast. Many riders return year after year to reconnect with new friends and riding partners – all committed to raising funds to help eliminate the terrible sting of cancer.
After careful consideration, we made the exceedingly difficult decision that this year’s ride will be the last GSQ. With this being the 20th year and nearing $2.0 million in fundraising, it was a suitable time to stop. Your dedication and friendship have meant a great deal to us, and the Mass General Hospital will be forever grateful for your fundraising. When we shared the news with Dr. Howard Weinstein, chief of pediatric oncology at Mass General, and fellow GSQ rider, Howard replied. “Our patients and families have benefited enormously from the fundraising efforts of the GSQ riders. It has been an honor to participate in the ride each year especially knowing that our teammates have included our patients and their family members.” The GSQ has always been about family and community and with that in mind, we look forward to having a special post ride celebration this year. We hope you will ride and celebrate with us on July 9th.
The registration fee is $50 per rider.
