The Witches of St. Andrews’ Charity Bike Ride Raises $20,000 for Pancreatic Cancer

The Witches of St. Andrews

The Witches of St. Andrews, a non-profit in Panama City, FL, hosted their 3rd annual charity bike ride on October 26, 2019. The Witches group was created in 2017 when seven women gathered to honor one of their own by organizing a charity bike ride to raise money dedicated to pancreatic cancer research and to support local patients suffering from pancreatic cancer.

The ride this year was in honor of Dr. Gregory Grantham and cancer survivors everywhere. The large group gathered, decked out in witchy costumes and ready to make some noise and “ride for a cure.” They rode down Beck Avenue in St. Andrews and ended it with brunch. There was also a contest for best costume and best decorated bike. The Witches raised over $20,000 and donated it to Nikki Mitchell Foundation, which supports their goals to fund pancreatic cancer research, while helping patients.
