Raising Money For Traci's Hope
10/6/2012 (Updated 10/8/2012 11:07:00 AM)Traci Gibson was just 38 years old when she passed away from breast cancer. She left behind a husband and 3 young boys,but her memory lives on.
Saturday was the 6th Annual Motorcyle Ride in Apalachin to raise money for the nonprofit organization known as Traci's Hope. Each year they try to help as many families as possible who are dealing with breast cancer. It may be helping them pay for groceries, day care or even their mortgage.
"Traci Gibson was a very, very special person who started this when I was a school bus driver for Owego Apalachin school. I drove her children on my bus through her illness and her passing and it was very touching to me and we've done our best to raise money for the event," said B.J. Wheeland, Organizer for the Motorcyle Ride.
This year alone Traci's Hope has helped over 55 families. However, because of the rain they had a lighter turnout than expected. If you want to donate you can go to their website at tracishope.com.
