Barb (Short) Brown ’77 used cycling to help regain strength after surviving her battle with cancer.

She is now organizing a program, Healing Rides, at her church, Wesley United Methodist Church, to help the elderly and people with disabilities enjoy the outdoors. The program uses a bike with a wheelchair attached for the passenger to ride in. When they first received the bike Barb tested it out with her dad, Lee Short ’44.

For more information on the program, go to the Pantagraph article.

  1. Barb, I really enjoyed reading about your efforts and your father. Tell Lee I still appreciate all he did for me as an Apollo Quartet member!
