The GIST Cancer Research Fund’s Cycling Warriors took to the road on October 23, 2012 for their 1,000-mile, 10-day crusade in the fight against GIST Cancer.

The spirit of Peter Thomas led the way and along with Riette and Dylan Thomas (and Wayne Thomas in tow), the riders began and ended a triumphant journey along the rugged South Africa coast.


It all started in Gordon’s Bay and concluded in Cape Town. It was the toughest and most challenging of the three Peter Thomas Memorial Rides For A Cure.

On May 23rd 2008 The Friends and Family of Tony Petruzziello suffered the loss of a truly great man. Throughout his life in good times and in bad Tony always said that what truly defines a man's character is persistence. The ability to meet challenges and not shy away from them. Persistence defined Tony which is where the fund gets its name.
