|$0 My Goal: $1,600.00|
Cancer is cruel and uninvited. It leaves us feeling powerless to its randomness, to its terrifying inevitibility. But every summer in the rolling hills and muggy heat of mid-Ohio, there is a chance to strike back. I am thrilled to be joining Pelotonia this summer, riding 55 miles with thousands of others in a celebration of life and survival in the face of a disease we all know too well.
When I get on my bike and train this summer for Pelotonia, there will be so many people in my heart and on my mind. I will be reminiscing on my grandfathers, John and Jack, who were both taken too soon, missed every day by their families. Of my parents, brother and sisters, the happy, healthy centers of my world whom I would do anything to keep that way. Of the stricken families holding hands in hospital waiting rooms, bracing for the fight of their loved one's life.
