This is my ninth year to ride in Pelotonia, and my first commitment to a 100 mile route. As in past years, I ride as a tribute to family and friends who have been diagnosed with cancer, endured surgeries and treatments, continue to live with cancer, or ultimately lost their life to cancer and live on in my heart. My ride is sponsored in part by The Revelators, a classic rock and roll band that has been raising money for the fight against cancer since 2009. I am deeply grateful to the band and all others who have contributed to Pelotonia on my behalf in past years, and graciously choose to do so this year. Thank you for your support of our goal to end cancer!
