The Story and Our Mission
Our mission of Rock and Ride for the Cure is to continue the legacy of our founder and dear friend; Bruce Panfil. Rock and Ride is a motorcycle ride and concert event that unites family and friends for a great cause. Together we raise money and awareness to help fight the awful disease of Pancreatic Cancer. All proceeds from Rock and Ride for the Cure go to the Pancreas Center at the Columbia University Medical Center and a named beneficiary that is battling Pancreatic Cancer.
In February 2014, Bruce Panfil was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. As he began a painful and expensive battle for his life, friends and family helped Bruce create the fundraiser, Rock and Ride for the Cure to help him with mounting medical costs. On December 5, 2015 we lost Bruce Panfil.
Today the non-profit 501(c)(3) Rock and Ride for the Cure, established in his memory, is dedicated helping someone in need as well as raising money to help find a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.

2018 Beneficiary – Sharon Triola
This year’s Rock and Ride for the Cure Beneficiary is Sharon Triola. Sharon 64, is a preschool teacher with a passion for children, a loving wife, and a loving aunt to so many. Although Sharon never had children of her own she loved every child in her life as if they were her own.
Sharon is a silly, fun loving, family oriented girl who has a passion for fun and teaching children. Sharon loves the beach more than anyone you’ll ever meet. She is always the first one to be digging and building that Sandcastle for the children. All the children would shortly be joining her for an afternoon as smiles and fun.
Sharon’s journey through life was disrupted eight weeks ago with a stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Please keep her in your prayers as her family, loved ones, and Rock and Ride rally to provide some financial relief and a cure for this awful disease. Take care and God bless!!
Our Founder – Bruce Panfil
In February of 2014, our adored brother and friend Bruce Panfil was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. At only 54 years of age, he began a battle with one of the most aggressive forms of cancer. He was given less than 6 months to live. But Bruce decided differently. For the next two years Bruce would not only courageously battle cancer, but also live and live well.
As he began a painful and expensive battle for his life, friends and family helped Bruce create the fundraiser, Rock and Ride for the Cure to help him with mounting medical costs. On December 5, 2015 we lost Bruce, but to this day we keep Rock and Ride for the Cure going in his honor to help others battle the horrible disease.
Together let’s keep the fight alive for those in need in and Rock and Ride all the way to the Cure!
