Bellringer Ride to Support Cancer Research at Georgetown

On October 22nd, ARES DC volunteers worked with our peers from Frederick County, MD and Montgomery County, MD to provide communications support for the inaugural Bellringer Ride. The event raised more than $1 Million for cancer research at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

After several weeks of planning, over twenty amateur radio operators volunteered their time, skills, and equipment to man positions at rest stops, support and gear (SAG) vans, and net control / ride command.
