WHY I RIDE

Hi All,

For this year's Pedal the Cause, I am very sorry to report that our blessed aunt, Anne Watt, succumbed to breast cancer December, 2017. She was of course very special to all of us, not just Ma, Chris, Ry and me, but to our wives and kids as well. She made Izzy and Samantha all ten (!) of their blankets, one of which finding its way back to Michigan to help her through her treatments, courtesy of Izzy. (Her idea. Adorable.) She'll be missed but she's in a better place.

So as to lighten this email's mood a bit, maybe I'll wrap one of those now-raggedy blankets around my head for this year's ride, kind of like a babushka... It's Pedal time, baby. Help me raise my $5,000 goal in Aunt Annie's honor this year! You know the drill. I'll go out and try not to quit halfway through. You get online and help fund cancer research. We raised $4 million last year - two-thirds to Siteman and a third to Children's Hospital. 100% directly toward cancer research at a 7-to-1 multiple for NIH funding. I'm biased as a Pedal board member, but I can tell you that not many not-for-profits operate this type of 100% model.

Thank you as always for your support. I know there are many great causes out there. We are fortunate that you make Pedal one of your annual contribution considerations.
