Custodian fights childhood cancer, mile by mile

Chris FreyGreat Cycle Challenge USAA third-shift custodian at Penn College is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge USA during June, biking and running throughout the month to raise money for – and awareness of – pediatric cancer. General Services employee Chris S. Frey is logging miles on behalf of Declan Bower, his cousins’ 6-year-old son, who was diagnosed several years ago with leukemia. Declan’s parents are Penn College employees, as well: Kristy L. is a nursing office assistant and Joshua A. is director of the physician assistant program. Those wishing to donate can access Frey’s “Team Declan” sponsor page.


Kristy L. Bower,

Thank you, Chris, for your continued support for Declan! Any amount helps in the fight against childhood cancer!

Cathy Lee,

Great job, Chris. I am also riding in GCC for the kids. My son is starting at Penn College in August. You’re a great role model. Keep riding.

Dan Schwanger,

I’m riding too, Chris! Great job! I hope you meet your goals! Let’s Kick Cancer’s Butt!

We’ll never share your email with anyone else.
