My Fundraising Progress:
$0 My Commitment: $2,000.00
   Congrats! Keep going!


I'm ready to achieve ONE GOAL!! I have set a goal of raising $2,019 this year- please help!

2019 marks my 6th Pelotonia ride. I have ridden 580 miles over 5 years and this year I'm in for 100 more miles!

This ride is nothing compared to the challenges being faced by those living with and dying from cancer. Won't it be amazing to say one day that we eradicated cancer? This ride is about that- the ONE GOAL of ENDING CANCER

My Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was one of the lucky ones of this silent killer- it was caught on a routine chest x-ray that was completed prior to heart surgery. They found it before he was symptomatic which is not the norm with lung cancer. He was given an 18 month prognosis in 2005. He was one month away from celebrating his 5 year survival when he died from an unrelated cause. He was so proud of his victory over lung cancer and I was equally inspired by him. I had the honor of hearing Dr. Peter Shields, Director of the Lung Cancer Program at the James, talk about the impact that Pelotonia money has on the research for lung cancer and lengthening a person's prognosis and quality of life.


 I believe we will see cancer cured in our lifetime and if this ride and this fundraising can play even a small role in that, then I will be honored and privileged to call myself a rider and participant in this event.
