Hudson motorcycle ride helps kids with cancer
By Ed Karvoski Jr., Contributing Writer
Hudson – This year 165 motorcyclists and many passengers participated in the fifth annual Riding for Sherry's House held July 13, beginning and ending at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie #643. The ride travelled a 63-mile route to Mt. Wachusett and back.
Others joined the riders afterward for a barbecue to support the fundraiser for Why Me and Sherry's House. A raffle and silent auction also raised funds with items including a round of golf for four at the Marlborough County Club, and tickets to a Boston Bruins game and “The Phantom of the Opera” at the Boston Opera House.
Lenore and John Musorofiti organize the event in honor of their step-grandson, Nicky Cremins, who received support from Why Me before he passed away at age 8 after a year-long battle with bone cancer in 2001.
Why Me is a Worcester-based nonprofit organization created to help families in central New England cope with childhood cancer. Its headquarters is Sherry's House, which is also a home-away-from-home for children with cancer and their families.
