WHY WE RIDE
Kiersten, Carson, and Hannah (along with too many other angels) are why we do this ride. Please help us stamp out childhood cancer so other kids and families don’t have to suffer.
About the Kiersten Dickson Memorial Cancer Research Endowment
The Kiersten Dickson Memorial Cancer Research Endowment at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta was established in 2018 by Shawn and John Dickson to honor their daughter, Kiersten, who lost her battle with lung cancer at the age of 20 in 2015. Income from this endowment will support pediatric cancer research at Children’s Health Care of Atlanta’s Aflac Cancer Center.
