Hello again!!

2018 will be my 5th Year of participating in Pedal the Cause with Maritz Peck's Pedalers.

Why do I ride? Each rider has his or her own individual reason for doing so. My first ride was more or less an experiment and more so a challenge for myself to help others. Not having ridden a bike for many years, and being diagnosed with Lupus myself it was a difficult decision. The question was, could I really complete the ride? I realized then that where you finish is not the point, it is not a race, it is the reason for riding, the reason being raising much needed funds to continue research and treatments to fight cancer, so the challenge for me is not to complete the ride, or finishing first, it is about continuing the fight.

We all know someone who has suffered from Cancer, some have survived, while many others are in the midst of their own battles. I want to ride for all the reasons, but most of all for a Cure. I strongly feel I must continue my efforts to help overcome this disease.

If you are visiting my page why not consider riding this Year with me? It is truly an experience you will not forget and a great Cause. If riding is out of the question for you, please consider donating and remember 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Thanks to all who supported me last year looking forward to another great year!!!
