Bank Proud to Support Bike For Cancer Care

KINGSTON – As the founding sponsor of Benedictine Health Foundation’s Bike for Cancer Care, Ulster Savings Bank will be celebrated at their 20th anniversary, which takes place on Sunday, September 24, 2023. Ulster Savings Bank, Bill Calderara, President and CEO, and John Finch, EVP and COO, will be honored at this event.

In partnership with the family of Rosemary D. Gruner, the Benedictine Health Foundation established the Rosemary D. Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund in 2004 to support cancer patients in Ulster County. Since then, more than $1,000,000 in assistance has been given to over 2,500 individuals diagnosed with cancer.

“Rosemary Gruner was our inspiration. She taught us to work hard and take care of others. When she was sick, she saw a need. As her family, we found a way to help,” said Ellen Gruner Arsenault.

As the Foundation’s major fund-raiser, the Bike for Cancer Care Ride & Run is now in its twentieth year. It will occur on Sunday, September 24th, starting at the Freeman Building, 79 Hurley Avenue, Kingston.
