Riding towards a better future for cancer research

In October 2022, 851 registered cyclists rode bikes for BellRinger, a fundraiser to end cancer that raised more than $1 million for cancer research. Rich Hluchan (SFS’71, Parent’08, ’09, ’17) raised more than $8,000 in honor of his dear friend, Bill Licamele, M.D. (C’68, M’72, R’74, W’76, Parent’01, ’04, ’07, ’08), who is undergoing cancer treatment at Georgetown University Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center

“I’ve come to know Bill very closely over the years,” Hluchan says. “We’ve traveled everywhere together cheering on Georgetown Basketball. When I found out that Bill was battling cancer, I thought it would be terrific to dedicate this bike ride to Bill, who said he was delighted. I emailed everybody I knew from Georgetown, and the response from Bill’s friends was just overwhelming. I think it buoyed his spirits. Anything I can do to support this cause and make Bill happy is worthwhile. It’s been a labor of love.”
