Prouty On behalf of all of us at Team Borealis HQ, a hearty thanks to our Prouty participants for all of their efforts in support of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, a part of theDartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Our team of 45 folks raised $60K as The Prouty raised $2.4M in total. An amazing effort!
We at Borealis would like to highlight one point to underscore why this is an important and worthwhile initiative for all of us. In 2010, funds coming from The Prouty contributed $900K to basic research performed by emerging scientists. Equally important is that this $900k led to incremental funding from more traditional sources like NIH for these same researchers totaling more than $12M. It would be very difficult for these young researchers to get the funds needed to pursue their ideas without the support that comes from The Prouty.
The 31st Annual Prouty Century Bike Ride & Challenge Walk took place on Friday and Saturday, July 12 & 13, 2012. While most of Team Borealis hit the road on bikes for the 20, 35, 50 and 100 mile loops, we also had a large group of walkers. Additionally, we had a hearty group of Ultimate riders who rode 100 miles Friday and hit the road again on Saturday.

We hope to see you on the team next year!
