WHY I RIDE

As with many, my family has been deeply impacted by cancer, especially in the last few years. My father passed away from a brain tumor late in 2012 and my mother, less than 4 months later, lost an almost 8 year, incredibly strong and tough battle with bladder cancer. In addition, my brother-in-law was diagnosed with late stage melanoma in 2013 and has been amazing in his strength and attitude to fight it. He's been supported by some incredible, life-saving immunotherapies that weren't available just a few years ago. He is still cancer free today! And, my sister-in-law was diagnosed earlier this year with colon cancer. She has been through several treatents and we continue to pray for a successful outcome. We have also had a number of close friends who have been impacted terribly by cancer.

I will ride for my sister-in-law, my brother-in-law and for all the others listed below who have been close to me and who battled with cancer, that we may see a day when all cancers are curable:

-Jack W. Love, R.I.P
-Elizabeth V. Love, R.I.P
-Sophie Steiner, R.I.P
-Danny Butler, R.I.P
-Pitty Brandin (Kathryn's aunt), R.I.P

I plan to ride 50+ miles.

Many, many thanks for whatever level of support you are able to provide!!

George
