AMHERST, N.Y. -- The Ride for Roswell is Saturday, but the festivities are already underway.
The Celebration of Hope was held Friday night. Thousands packed UB Stadium to greet those who rode in the Peloton from Roswell Park downtown, through Delaware Park, to the stadium.
The event celebrates cancer survivors and patients, their families, and caregivers.
Juliana Wright is part of the Y-Roswell Street Team, a group of young people who volunteer in the fight against cancer.
"I'm just gonna be so appreciative and grateful for everyone here, every volunteer, every doctor, every patient," she said.
Michael Kabel is a cancer survivor, and so is his wife. He's been going to Roswell for almost thirty years.
