Paul Green
Eskenazi Health Palliative Care program welcomes Paul Green to the Eskenazi Health Cycling team as he prepares for the Ride to Remember.

Green will ride along side 25 other Eskenazi Health cyclist as they ride in the Ride Across Indiana (RAIN). The ride stretches 160 miles from Terre Haute, Ind. to Richmond, Ind.

These 25 Eskenazi Health cyclists are riding in memory of the patients that the Eskenazi Health Palliative Care Program has cared for over the past year. It is also an opportunity to raise money for the contiuation of the growing palliative program.

Green says his favorite training route is his morning commute to work at Eskenazi Health from the Northern Hamilton County loops.

Green says there are three reasons he chooses to participate in the Ride to Remember, One; to remember the patients palliative care has cared for, two; he has an obbsession with anything that has two wheels and three; because he can!

Green’s favorite cycling quote is, “Whenever I see an adult on a bicycle, I have hope for the human race.” – H.G. Wells

Allen EdmondsEskanazi Health Palliative Care cycling team welcomes Allan Edmonds as he prepares for his fifth Ride Across Indiana (RAIN) and fourth time participating in Ride to Remember event in honor of Eskenazi Palliative Care patients.

Edmonds says his favorite training ride is either the Nashville 90 that takes place in Bloomington, Ind. or any other ride around the Bloomington area with his cycling friends.

Edmonds joined Eskenazi Health Cycling team for R2R6 to support and promote the Eskenazi Health Palliative Care program. Edmonds also participates to remember both a nephew and cousin who passed away this past year.

His favorite memory from a ride came from the most recent Nashville mile when the riders had to dismount the bikes, carry shoes, socks and bikes a quarter of a mile through thigh-deep, moving water.

Edmonds’ favorite cycling quote comes from Albert Einstein, “Life is like a bicycle, you must keep moving.”
