|$0 My Goal: $2,800.00|
I have never personally had to battle cancer, but I’ve seen brave men and women I love and respect go toe to toe with this awful beast. Prayer has always been, and will always be, my go-to for support, healing and uplifting those battling this disease.
But money doesn’t hurt either. It takes equally brave, talented, and respected doctors, clinicians, researchers (and others) to find ways to help us eliminate cancer and provide cancer patients with a clear path to full recoveries. Pelotonia is a great way to raise awareness and funds for cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
This year I am riding Pelotonia for the third year in a row! I ride in honor and memory of my family members and friends who have been through or been affected by cancer. two years ago, my first ride was specifically dedicated to my uncle Bob. Bob married my wife (Kristen) and I, helped us find our first bikes as a couple, took us on our first countryside ride, and is a wonderful friend and influence to the two of us. In April of 2018, he began his battle with pancreatic cancer. After this year's Pelotonia ride Bob will be 2 full years out from his surgery on August 8th of 2018.
Prayer, cancer research, and the support of hundreds of thousands of people has given us more time with our loved ones, including my brother, uncles and many others.
Thank you to everyone who supported Kristen and I in our first two rides. We continue to increase our goals and distances and can't wait to ride in our first centennial, plus continue the wonderful 35-mile day 2 ride (our inaugural ride). This year we are each excited to raise $2500 towards cancer research!
Thank you for considering donating to Kristen’s ride or my ride as we raise funds for this year's Pelotonia. We would love and greatly appreciate your support.
If you know others interested in donating to Cancer research please pass them our website links pelotonia.org/keeganh or pelotonia.org/kristenhazen.
Thank you all so much for your prayers and support!
Riding in Honor of: Bob, Brenda, Calvin, Dave, Gary, Karen, Kyle, Paula E, and Yamile.
