I am excited to let you know that I have joined Pelotonia. I’ve been training diligently, much to the surprise of my lovely wife, as I prepare to ride 45 miles to help end cancer.
As you know, my oldest son Jared was diagnosed with Osteo Sarcoma October 2010. He has survived this disease and his life is flourishing. Married to his beautiful wife Melissa for 2 years as of July 15, they are now expecting their first child December 29! Jared has riden in this event the last 5 years. I felt it was time for me to join him. What has made it even more special is my son Drew has decided to ride with us as well. We have all been touched by cancer and that is why I would like to ask you to support me as I ride. I feel this is a way we all can have an impact on ending cancer. I have committed to raise $1500.00; any amount you give will make a difference in someone’s life.
I’ve joined the Greatest Team Ever, a community of riders, virtual riders, volunteers, researchers, donors, donors and passionate fundraisers who committed to join forces to make amazing things happen. In just ten years the Pelotonia community raised over $184 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. Your support matters. Join me. Together, we are unstoppable.
