Team Ruesch's story

Join the Ruesch Team to ride 25, 50, or 100 miles in BellRinger this October. 100% of funds raised from BellRinger support cancer research at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The Ruesch Center for the Cure of Gastrointestinal Cancers is a dedicated part of Georgetown Lombardi. Gastrointestinal (GI) cancers are the most common and the most fatal of all cancers, yet continue to be dramatically under-funded. This year, more than 300,000 Americans will be diagnosed with a GI cancer and more than 50% will die within five years. With this in mind, in 2009, Jeanne Ruesch founded the Ruesch Center at Georgetown Lombardi with a $6.75 million seed grant in honor of her late husband Otto. Today, the Ruesch Center is a global pioneer, unmatched by any other GI cancer program. Relentlessly fighting a smarter war against GI cancer by partnering with patients based on their unique needs, the Ruesch Center is carrying out cutting-edge, innovative research, and providing the highest standard of care and individualized cures.
