On August 9th and 10th this summer, Dr. Wolford, her son, Jon and nephew, Andy rode their bicycles 180 miles to honor her brother and raise money for the James Cancer Center at The Ohio State University. Dr. Wolford, her nephew Andy, her husband and her 4 siblings are graduates of OSU, her son currently attends the university.
“We owe a debt of gratitude to the James Cancer Center for not only saving my brother’s life but for the ground breaking cancer research they do.” Over 7200 riders participated in various length rides, Dr. Wolford and family are participating in the 180 miles for the second year. The miles on the bike are nothing compared to hours spent in surgery, chemo and radiation so there are no complaints from the riders.
If you would still like to donate to the cause we are happy to accept donations for Jon’s ride.
We are already training for next year, thank you for your support.
Jane Wolford, OD and family
A study involving 4,000 children found that that spending at least 2 hours a day outside decreases axial length of the eye (myopia, or nearsightedness). An additional study involving 946 young adults found that increasing serum concentration of vitamin D was associated with a decreasing prevalence of myopia, and that higher vitamin D intake decreased the risk of myopia. SO get outdoors this summer!
