   Congrats! Keep going!



A word I learned at a very young age as I watched a close family friend lose her battle to breast cancer. Fast forward a few years to high school a phone call my mom received while out to dinner that my Grandma (survivor) was diagnosed with Breast Cancer - this time it hit too close to home. As I grew older, I only learned the devastating lengths this disease can take.

In college we learned Grandpa Ley was diagnosed with prostate cancer - this is a guy that swam every single day, so healthy, how could this be?

Margie & Lisa were two of the funniest, most accepting, kind-hearted women I have ever met. Margie, mother to one of my lifelong best friends and Lisa, one of my dad's best friends. You would have never known how much they struggled. They were so positive and inspiring and battled just as fierce as the women they were.    

Then, there's Bear. He was 9 when he was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma in 2018. I had been very involed with THON while I worked at Penn State (fundraiser for childhood cancer), but had never personally dealt with it. When I got the news from my dear friends, my heart broke for them and their son. He is now 11.

Throughout my life, I have been touched by so many amazing people who have been affected by this horrific disease in some way, shape or form. Unfortunately, you have too. So let's band together and beat this thing!

I have made it a goal since I moved to Columbus in 2014 to ride in Pelotonia and am finally getting the chance.

I ride for Jane.

I ride for Neemaw.

I ride for Grandpa.

I ride for Margie.

I ride for Lisa.

I ride for Bear.

I ride for you and yours.
