   Congrats! Keep going!

Friends and family,

Ashley and I are committed to riding 45 miles in Pelotonia again this year. Our 8th year riding, you have helped us raise over $24,000 dollars since 2012; money that has gone directly to funding research that hopefully, one day, will lead to a cure and/or prevention of cancer. 

You know our history with Ashley’s melanoma. Unfortunately, since our last ride less than a year ago, many of us have had friends and family hear the same words from their doctors, “you have cancer." For those who live in Columbus, and many from afar, the James at OSU becomes their hope and home. All of the donations to Pelotonia stay right here in Columbus at the James.

We are asking for your support again this year to continue the fight. As always, we have some special goodies for your donations as well! We hope to earn your support, and we will ride hard thinking of you and all of our friends and family touched by this disease. 

$50-$99: 4oz mason jar of Ben's special bbq spice rub. Tested, approved, and happily consumed by friends & family.
$100-$299: Spice rub + Canvas tote and zipper pouch printed with pomegranates by Ashley using hand carved block printing stamps. Great for groceries, farmers markets, errands, etc!
$300-above: All of the above as well as a custom family photo session with Ben ($395 value).  This will include a consultation with Ben prior to the shoot and a 1 hour session in Columbus (or Cincinnati for the Flowers family) at a location of your choice.  You will receive a digital gallery of 50-80 edited images with full reprint rights.  You can gift the photography session or use it yourself.

The goodies above are available regardless of whether you donate to Ben, Ashley, or both.

If you’ve made it to the end of this note and are even slightly thinking about supporting our rides, we cannot thank you enough.  We know we’re asking a lot of you each year and are honored that you’ve carried us the past 7 years.  We are extremely thankful for your support this year as well.

Thank you so much! 
Ben and Ash
