Team Whatevros for B.A.S. Rides Again!

Despite a dismal forecast for Sunday’s Boston Brain Tumor Ride, Team Whatevros for B.A.S was excited and ready to ride. Luckily the rain held off and our team of 16 riders all crossed the finish line before the skies opened. This year our team welcomed five new riders, including Hemenway parents Brenda Dostie and Patty Hebert. Hemenway teachers Michelle Gibson and Becky Lepow returned for a second year and completed the 50 mile ride! Our team raised $15,325 this year, including more than $500 of donations from the Hemenway staff. Team Whatevros has now raised over $65,000 in three years for the National Brain Tumor Society. Although my brother Brian was unable to ride alongside us this year, it was for a wonderful reason. Brian and his wife will welcome their first baby in just a few weeks! With the perfect MRI he had at Duke on Tuesday, a baby on the way, and the hundreds of supporters behind him, he is floating on cloud nine. Miracles do happen!

Thank you to everyone who donated so generously! Your support is so greatly appreciated.

Ms. Nolan
