Ride For Roswell Opening Ceremony 2012 Survivors' Celebration
On Friday, June 22, 2012, Roswell Park cancer patients, survivors and their guests gathered with riders and volunteers in the SurvivorSHIP tent at the first-ever and long-to-be-remembered Ride For Roswell Opening Ceremony.

The tent featured Roswell Park researchers, who were on hand to talk about the latest research that is making a difference for patients today and for years to come. Survivors enjoyed delicious treats, tested their knowledge and accuracy at table games, and tried their luck at the ever-popular basket raffle.

Following the pre-party tent, the Opening Ceremony kicked off with a procession of riders and survivors, followed by the arrival of the Peloton, and inspirational remarks by cancer advocate and former Buffalo Bills linebacker Chris Spielman, all leading up to a live performance by vocalist Rick Springfield, known for his hit-single “Jessie’s Girl.”
