Reid's Ride 2021

Reid's Ride is a true North Shore event where participants travel at their own pace along the town and country roads of Essex County

This is the 17th year of Reid's Ride 28-Mile Bike Ride.  Because of social-distancing and other restriction imposed by COVID last year and continuing to this year, we have had to run this and last year's Reid's Ride as Virtual Events.  Hopefully in 2022 we'll resume our traditional event as a group bike ride from Lynnfield High School to our finish line activities at Stage Fort Park Gloucester for music, refreshments, awards, raffles and booths.

Reid's Ride has raised over $3 million since its inception and virtually of those funds have been used to launch and continuously support to AYA Cancer Programs that have set the bar for all other Programs across the country and overseas.

Proceeds from Reid’s Ride support programs specially designed to address the unique needs of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) diagnosed with cancer. These programs attack AYA Cancer on many fronts including basic research, improved access to clinical trials, specialized clinical care during and after treatment, and the training of physicians in AYA oncology. 

If you can’t ride in the event this year, you can make a donation to sponsor your favorite team or rider!

Reid's Ride History

Reid's Ride is named after Reid Sacco, who lost his life to cancer at age 20 in 2005. The Ride is the primary fundraiser for the Reid Sacco Adolescent & Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Alliance, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to fighting for AYAs diagnosed with cancer. The Alliance is working hard to help make all AYAs cancers routinely curable or entirely preventable. The medical community worldwide recognizes that AYA cancer patients have not benefited from the advances in cancer treatment and survival rates seen in children and older adults. Reid and young adult cancer patients like him found themselves willing to fight but without the options and resources they needed. Your participation in Reid’s Ride, as a rider or a donor, supports innovative programs designed to make sure AYA cancer patients are not left behind. Reid’s Ride has launched two Reid R Sacco AYA Cancer Programs in New England, one at Tufts Cancer Center and one at Connecticut Children's Hospital. By riding in the 2020 Reid’s Ride you are helping save the lives of AYAs diagnosed with cancer.
