What is The Dragon's Last Ride?
Losing a child to cancer is devastating. It’s unimaginable. And for many, it's an emotional and financial strain.
That’s why Chris and Michele Westerholm started The Dragon’s Last Ride, to help others facing something too scary to face alone: a fight for the life of a child.
Their inspiration, the 5-year-old, happy, energetic dancer, Jenna Westerholm, who died in 2009 after battling with a sarcoma cancer for three years.
Chris and Michele know what it’s like. “We personally felt the financial and emotional strain caused by having a child with cancer.” They know that families need support during these tough times, and solidarity events like The Dragon's Last Ride provide both.
The Dragon’s Last Ride events raise funds for the Jenna Westerholm Pediatric Help$ Program, administered by the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation. To-date, 83 grants of up to $1,000 for financial assistance have been awarded to families with kids diagnosed with a sarcoma.
Darlis and Katie Elliott brought the Dragon's Last Ride to Alaska to help increase funds and awareness. Katie was able to participate in the first two rides, but sadly the cancer took over and claimed her life in January 2015. Darlis now continues the Alaska ride in memory of Katie and so many other children who have died or are treated for sarcoma cancers.
Due to the very aggressive nature and rare diagnosis of sarcoma, it is not often treated in Alaska so many Alaska families are required to travel and live outside during lengthy treatments (Katie's was 14 months the first time!).
Join us as we ride together in solidarity against childhood sarcoma cancers! For more information on The Dragon’s Last Ride, visit dragonslastride.org.
On behalf of the many families who have benefitted from financial assistance, the folks at the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation, and the greater sarcoma community in the Northwest, thank you Darlis Elliot, and Chris & Michele Westerholm for your bravery and your compassion for others.
