I am riding In Memory of Nick Porter.


I can't believe how quickly time passed but 5 years ago I was inspired to get off the couch and join Pedal the Cause after watching Nick Porter on the news. Knowing a friend is battling cancer is tough and you never know what to do. He was an inspiration to us all and when I heard him say that he was going to ride I made my decision. Now I am committed, seeing the survivors and hearing their stories at the beginning of the ride is incredibly motivating!

Like many others my family has been impacted by Cancer. I ride in the memory of my friends and family that we have lost. My Grandpa Harkins, I was young when we lost him and really didn't comprehend what he was battling, Uncle Bud Bergman who made me laugh constantly and my Mother in law Joan Flanagan who gave me the greatest gift...... my wife Jean. Jean is a living example of strength and courage. We benefited from the research done to fight cancer.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride, and give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
