About Joyce:  Saturday's events are dedicated to Joyce Perry.  Joyce is an ambassador for HERA Foundation.  Over the years, Joyce has played an integral part in making this event possible.  Joyce was great at helping us raise awareness for ovarian cancer by sharing her story.  Right now Joyce is struggling with recurrence and she won't be able to speak at the race this year.  She'll be here in spirit though as she continues to inspire us!
