Caitie’s Army was inspired by Caitie Rhodes of Andalusia, who was diagnosed and treated for brain cancer at Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham. Touched by her story, organizers hold activities and events to raise funds that support The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s. Last year, the ride raised more than $8,000 for childhood cancer research and to help families like Caitie’s. Caitie will turn 24 this year and has now transitioned to adult care at UAB.
