one wheel. one cure.
Every person has a dream. We challenge ourselves and commit to accomplishing some extraordinary feat. Tristan Bates has committed to unicycling across New England, a total of 419 miles, in a matter of 10 days. He will cross some of the greatest terrain in the upper states and brave the harsh May temperatures, all for one great cause: cancer research.
Five years ago, the Bates family suffered a huge loss when their grandfather, Herb Bates, Sr., passed after a long fight with cancer. Tristan had already started planning this uni-thon when his father, Herb Bates, Jr., passed away on February 8, 2010 – also a result of cancer. Tristan is more committed than ever to fight the battle against cancer. Join the fight today. Sponsor Tristan and be part of the cure.
