18 Guys, 5 Days and 500 Miles — The Wings Ride team will depart on a 500 mile cycling charity event beginning on Saturday, Oct. 5, from The West Clinic in Memphis, Tenn., to Rosemary Beach, promoting cancer awareness, encouraging a healthy lifestyle and raising funds for Wings Cancer Foundation’s Wellness Program. The team is scheduled to arrive in Rosemary Beach Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013 at around 6 p.m. The public is invited to be there to welcome the team.

Wings Ride will fund Wings Wellness, a program that teaches cancer survivors to incorporate daily exercise, healthy diet, and stress management into their lives after their cancer treatment is complete. Research shows that these activities help survivors recover from their treatment faster as well as prevent future cancer diagnosis. All of these programs and services are offered in the Memphis area free of charge to anyone touched by cancer regardless of where treatment is received.
