Video: Prouty Ultimate 2017: A Mother-Daughter Prouty Story

Friday, July 07, 2017

“Every time that it hurts, I think about how much it hurts for somebody else.”

Erin Levy, 36, and her mother Robin Weisburger, 59, of Orford, are among the dozens of riders on the road right now biking a nearly 200-mile Prouty Ultimate ride to raise money for Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center, logging about half of their miles today. The mother-daughter team has lost a number of family members and friends to cancer — but also ride for those who have survived.

Levy rode her first Prouty when she was 6 years old. Their current riding crew, the Wobegon Warriors, was created by a friend who survived ovarian cancer and will join them on the road on Saturday, when Levy and Weisburger will log the remainder of the route.

Valley News photographer Jovelle Tamayo was with Levy and Weisburger before the sun rose this morning as they got ready to ride. Hear them talk about why they ride in Tamayo’s video.
