|$0 My Goal: $5,000.00|
8/8/20 Update: Today I rode 70 miles for MyPelotonia. It was the perfect day and a perfect ride. I only saw one cardinal....he knew I had this. ♥
This is my second year as a rider and I'm so proud to be a member of the Pelotonia community. While disappointed that we cannot safely ride as a group, my heart overflows with gratitude that we're still being given the opportunity to raise money for The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
My Pelotonia 2020 consists of a couple parts.... my first goal is to plank for 3 minutes every day in loving memory and honor of 3 family members touched by this disease: my late Uncle Don, my late Father-in-law Fred and lastly my cousin Ed, who kicked cancer's ass this past year.
I'm also training for a solo ride of 61 miles on or near celebration day, August 8th, in memory of my dear friend Pat, who celebrated his 61st birthday on April 8th, 2020, three days before he lost his heroic battle to pancreatic cancer. Pat was my motivation to sign up as a rookie rider last year and will continue to be my inspiration for years to come.
And while fundraising minimums have been lifted, I will maintain my high roller status and pledge to raise at least $5000 this year. I am committed to raising as much money as I possibly can because I AM TENACIOUS!
I know I’ve joined the Greatest Team Ever, a community of riders, virtual riders, athletes, volunteers, researchers, donors and passionate fundraisers who committed to join forces to make amazing things happen. In eleven years the Pelotonia community raised over $216 million for cancer research. But we aren’t stopping there. Every single dollar we raise is invested in innovative cancer research, the brightest minds and ideas, and the tools and technology needed to reach our one goal.
Please join me in supporting this cause and let’s save lives. Remember - 100% of every single dollar raised is directed to life-saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
Thank you for visiting my profile and thank you in advance for your contribution. Your support matters greatly to me, my family and Pat's family. Together we rise.
