The Run-Ride for Ragan Biathlon, held in October, raised $15,000 for the Southeast Cancer Patient Experience Fund to support mammography services for early detection of breast cancer. The Java Joggers organized the event in honor of the late Ragan Ward Neilson, a Cape Girardeau native and the daughter of Dr. Robert and Barb Ward. Ragan died of breast cancer in October 2007 at the age of 32. The Java Joggers, of which Barb Ward is a member, presented the check to representatives of the Southeast Cancer Center and the SoutheastHEALTH Foundation.
