Crystal for a cause


Tonawanda News — Bridget Burns, senior marketing coordinator for the Ride for Roswell, said Krienbuhl is a “very dedicated rider.”

“It’s so nice, because this is a grassroots effort,” she said. “Our riders ... they all have a connection to the cause. They become our family as well. We are very fortunate that they bring their lives into this. Michele is very generous and has a very strong following that rallies behind her.

“The things that she does ... it provides inspiration.”

For her part, Krienbuhl hopes the some day her efforts are unnecessary ... but until then, she’s going to keep them up.

“Hopefully there will be a day when kids will say to their parents, ‘What was (cancer)?’ “ she said. “There was a time 10 to 20 years ago when it was a death sentence. Today people are living. There’s always that hope.”
