Twelve years ago, Jeremy Sprecher registered to ride his bike to Lexington and back as part of the first Bike to Beat Cancer in support of Norton Cancer Institute. Even greater than the challenge of the miles was the challenge to raise $2,500.
Over 12 years and a lot of pedaling, Jeremy and his family this year marked raising more than $100,000 for Norton Cancer Institute.
Jeremy is quick to point out this is a “family affair.” He, his wife, Kirsten, and their kids — Isabel, 16; Gretchen, 14; and Mitchell, 11 — ride in Bike to Beat Cancer together.
It’s not too late to support Bike to Beat Cancer and further the lifesaving mission of Norton Cancer Institute.
Raising all that money over the years “is something my kids, my wife and I are super proud of,” said Jeremy, who is vice president of finance and operations for Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital.
This year was no different for the Sprechers. While hundreds of riders weren’t able to gather to start and finish the ride together at Norton Cancer Institute – Brownsboro on Sept. 12, Bike to Beat Cancer had four marked routes in the area.
Spreading riders out allowed for a safer ride with less risk of spreading the coronavirus/COVID019.
The Sprecher family chose the Southern Indiana route and represented the Norton Women’s & Children’s Hospital team.
“I have seen firsthand the impact that COVID-19 has had on our cancer patients and care providers,” Jeremy said. “This year, my family knows our support is more important than ever. We are proud to continue our participation in the Bike to Beat Cancer.”
