Bike for Clyde event raises money for others battling Cancer
TOWN CREEK, Ala. (WHNT) – Community members are riding their bicycles for more than 43 miles during the 2015 Ride for Clyde event on Saturday morning. The bike ride is a way to honor Clyde Goode, III’s life, and to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the CG3 Scholarship Fund and for future Ride for Clyde events.
Goode was a football player at Hazlewood High before playing for the University of Alabama from 1987 – 1991. He was diagnosed with leukemia in 2011. Shortly after, Open Hearts Ministries started Ride for Clyde to raise money for his medical expenses. Organizers said they chose a bike ride because Goode was an avid cyclist. He lost his battle on July 6, 2012.
For those unable to participate in the bike ride, they can still make a donation by sending a check to Open Hearts Ministries. The checks can be mailed to 222 McConnell Road, Killen, AL 35645.
