The PVDA Ride for Life is both a dressage show and a benefit for breast cancer quality of life research at the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. The dressage show is one of five annual USDF/USEF Licensed (recognized) shows sponsored by the PVDA.
Started in 2004 the Ride for Life has raised over $895,000 for the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. Donations support quality of life research, patient retreats, and breast surgical oncology fellowships. The Johns Hopkins Breast Surgery Fellowship is 100% supported by the PVDA R4L.
We couldn't have this event without a multitude of dedicated volunteers. Work on the R4L starts after the winter holidays. Volunteers to help with planning, advertising, fundraising, organization, and logistics in addition to day of volunteers during the show are needed.
There are so many ways you can support the PVDA Ride for Life. Contact us to find out more about volunteer opportunities, fundraising, and the show.
