Roc the Ride for Roc Solid Foundation

The locally-based Roc Solid Foundation is doing a 270 mile bike ride from Washington D.C. to Richmond all the way down to Norfolk for one very special reason.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WVEC) -- Roc the Ride is a four day, 270-mile cycling trip to raise awareness for childhood cancer awareness month and Roc Solid Foundation.

From September 12-15th, 12-member team will cycle from Washington D.C. to Richmond and then Norfolk. 

In each city the cyclists will be stopping at the major children's hospitals. The last mile is to CHKD in Norfolk with dozens of Roc Solid kids and families. 

Each cyclist has a goal to raise $5,000, with all proceeds benefiting Roc Solid's program.

Roc Solid Foundation is a Chesapeake based non-profit that builds hope for families facing pediatric cancer.

It’s best known for its Play It Forward initiative, which builds custom play sets for kids ages 1 - 8 and completes room makeovers for kids ages 8 - 18.
