Who they are ?
The Prouty™ began in 1982 when four NCCC nurses, inspired by the courage of their patient, Audrey Prouty, committed to cycling 100 miles through the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
Nearly 90 cents of every dollar raised stays at Norris Cotton Cancer Center to fund cancer research seeking better ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent cancer. Research conducted here makes a difference in the lives of cancer patients all over the world. Money raised also funds patient supportive services that help ease the way for patients and families struggling with cancer. As founding nurse Patty Carney says, “Everyone knows an Audrey Prouty.”

What did we do ?
This year Will N. from Dataiku has participated in the 38th Annual Prouty, held on July 12 & 13, 2019, in Hanover, New Hampshire. He had launch a fundraise internally and our employees had been pretty generous as they gave more than $1000 in less than a week. This amount has been doubled thanks to our Ikig.ai initiative and we reached the great amount of $2 494.
Money raised helps to fund cancer research and patient supportive services at Dartmouth’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 49 comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute. Supporting The Prouty means supporting researchers and clinicians who are working on innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and hopefully, one day, cure cancer. You’re also supporting important patient supportive services that would otherwise not be funded such as support groups, massage, writing and arts therapy programs.
We are pretty exited for next year annual prouty 🙂
Sadly after humming along with his brother and Ian Boswell, all until Will N. crashed on a fairly gnarly dirt descent traveling at ~40mph. The doctors advised him to retire from the ride, in case he had knocked his noggin. So he was « only » able to complete 70 of the 100 miles, but he had some scrapes and bruises to show for it.
Fortunately, X-rays on his shoulder (which took the brunt of the blow) were negative 🙂
« Thanks to Ikigai for supporting my ride at the Prouty. I had no idea we could raise so much money — thanks for encouraging me to think big and harness the power of Dataiku! Looking forward to doing it bigger and better next year! »Will N.
