Hello Friends, Family and Colleagues
Last year I committed to riding 100 miles for cancer research at Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center in Seattle……the very first Obliteride! I dedicated my ride to my late cousin Olinda Schellings. Olinda was a leukemia survivor benefitting from bone marrow transplantation which was pioneered here in Seattle at the Hutch.
This year I challenged myself to ride 150 miles and I am dedicating my ride to my friend Tim. Tim recently completed treatment in Seattle and is doing well. Tim, a dedicated biker and outdoor enthusiast has been an inspiration to me and everyone that knows him.
Riding 150 miles is the least I could do to help "keep the labs open".
Please see my personal statement at this link:
I’m stepping up to ask you to join me in fighting cancer. Cancer has taken too many lives and is threatening too many more. Research is the path to discovery and understanding. Cancer has touched many of us personally and it is a diagnosis that no one wants to hear.
I have made the fight against cancer a personal one. Cancer knows no boundaries….it does not recognize race, religion, politics, borders nor age. We are in this together!
Please do the same and help me achieve my goal to keep the labs open. Keeping the labs open means we get closer to a cure by improving treatments and care.
Please join me in this fight. Please donate to my ride. My goal is $5,000.00.
Riding Obliteride might be hard, but it’s nothing compared to fighting cancer. Thank you Tim for being an inspiration to us all, and thank you for your contribution.
