2019 Dempsey Challenge

Vivian St. Onge Memorial Rickshaw Team-Short Folks For Hope

The Vivian St. Onge Memorial Rickshaw Team is funded and managed by 501(c)(3) cancer support charity Short Folks For Hope Foundation.  Vivian's Rickshaw Team has participated in five Dempsey Challenges beginning with the 2014 Dempsey Challenge in memory of late cancer warrior, avid cyclist, supporter of the Dempsey Center, and Short Folks For Hope Emeritus Board Member, Vivian St. Onge, who earned her angel wings February 28, 2014.  The Rickshaw Team was a wish of Vivian's that we were blessed to be able to bring to fruition.  

Cancer warriors who are unable to cycle in the Dempsey Challenge event are eligible to become members of the Vivian St. Onge Memorial Rickshaw Team and ride in the Dempsey Challenge cycling event with team pedicab drivers from Flow Pedicab.  The team rides approximately 2-1/2 miles, and cancer warriors are celebrated at the finish line.  It is an amazing, hope-inspiring event, and it is a true joy to see our cancer warrior team members experience the cycling event in this special way. 

If you are a cancer warrior (or know one) who would like an application to ride in the Dempsey Challenge and be a Vivian's Rickshaw Team member, please contact Kristen Short at Short Folks For Hope Foundation, (888) 522-6987, or email
