Ride for A. Berger
It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we invite you to participate in our third annual fundraising event on July 26, 2015 at 12pm. This year, we will be spinning in honour of Amanda and we hope you will join us!
Three years ago, Amanda was taken from us too soon. At the age of 25, Amanda died from a virus that couldn’t be stopped. She spent the last years of her life studying and actively helping those in need in developing countries. She worked with the Global Task Force on Expanded Access to Cancer Care and Control in Developing Countries with Harvard, while studying at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in the UK.
For the past three years, we have been raising money for the Fund created in Amanda’s memory at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The money raised has gone to provide financial assistance to graduates from the school who continue research in non-communicable diseases such as cancer in third world countries. In addition, her Fund has been a key sponsor in a Reena Foundation event.
