The Inaugural Ride, held May 2015 as part of a weekend of events commemorating the 5th anniversary of the passing of Ronnie James Dio, drew over 300 riders and fans.
The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund was formed in memory of the legendary rock singer Ronnie James Dio, who lost his life to gastric cancer in 2010. SUAS has already raised over $1 million for cancer research projects in its short history. Just recently, the original bass player in Dio, Jimmy Bain, died of lung cancer and Lemmy Kilmister, the celebrated leader of Motorhead, lost his battle with what was deemed an “extremely aggressive cancer” just after Christmas. These and other deaths attributed to cancer have only reinforced the commitment of the Dio Cancer Fund to support research and education that furthers early detection, prevention and treatment of prostate, colon and gastric cancers. Portions of the money raised thus far has been allocated to the cancer research work of the T. J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research, and the Gastric Cancer Research Unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated during the last six months of his life.
