Dear Family and Friends:

I am sure that most of you have been touched in some way by cancer. I have experienced first hand this dreaded disease through my mother, my daughter, Jennifer, my sister-in-law, my cousins, friends, friends of friends, family members of friends, business associates, business associates' family members and the list goes on. There isn't a day that doesn't go by that I don't hear of someone in some way being connected to cancer. Cancer has touched so many lives and needs to be stopped before we lose anyone else we love. Other than the obligatory nominal donations and donating blood in my mother's memory for the past 42 years, (to maintain my commitment for blood donations that were originally needed for her cancer treatment), I've realized that I have not done enough to help in combating this dreaded disease. My mother lost her battle to cancer just before she turned 42 years old.

I am doing this ride with Pedal the Cause to help with cancer research in battling this dreaded disease. Most everyone has been touched in some way by cancer and I feel this is my one way to help battle cancer. I do this in memory of loved ones and friends who were taken by this disease, for survivors and for those still fighting.

Last year, Jennifer and I rode 55 miles and this year we are committed to continuing our long rides with the hope of raising more funds for cancer research.

Please support our ride with your donations.

I want to sincerely thank you for your support!


Larry Present
