WHY I'M INSPIRED

I'm riding because cancer keeps creeping into the lives of people I care about.

Several years ago I attended a meeting. During the meeting, the speaker asked any member of the audience who was battling cancer or who had survived cancer to stand up. A few people stood. Next the speaker asked anyone who had a family member who had been affected by cancer to stand. Many more people joined the standing group. After that, the speaker asked anyone in the audience who personally knew of someone who had cancer to stand. Almost everyone in the room was now on their feet. It was quite a visual and left an impression on me of just how many lives are touched in some way by cancer.

Since that meeting years ago, cancer has affected members of my family and many friends. It keeps creeping into the lives of wonderful people I know and care about. Most of them have battled it and won, some are battling it now, and a few have very sadly lost the fight. It's not fair. Cancer is stealing precious time from incredible people in our lives. So, I'm riding to raise money for cancer research in hopes of finding a cure and to keep it from creeping anymore.

I'll be riding 25 miles again this year and would love your support.
