2017 marks the 5th year that Shady Grove Fertility has participated in the Armed Forces Cycling Classic. A team of 12 riders comprised of SGF staff, physicians, sponsors, friends, and family joined other cyclists in Crystal City, VA to support the Armed Forces Cycling Classic Challenge Ride, which benefits the Wounded Airman Program. This year also marked the first year that each team could select a charity of choice for which to raise funds. SGF is proud to report that they raised $325 for the Cade Foundation.
“The ride is a wonderful way to get to know cyclists from the many different departments and offices at SGF. We have grown so much as a practice, many of us have never met or spent any time together. Some take the challenge to ride as many laps as possible while others simply enjoy the car-free course and comradery of other cyclists, all while raising money for the Cade Foundation,” says SGF physician, Dr. Barbara Osborn of Shady Grove Fertility’s Washington, D.C., Sibley office.
Shady Grove Fertility has always made affording care for our patients in the military a priority. Through our unique financial programs, we offer a Military Discount Program that gives all active duty and reservist service men and women a 25 percent discount on a range of fertility services. We are proud to extend this discount in recognition of their service to our country.
