Thanks for taking a minute to read my profile. This is my third year riding in Pelotonia. I signed up as a rider in 2014 after hearing some pretty scary statistics about cancer:
Did you know that 1 out of every 2 men will be diagnosed with some type of cancer in their lifetime?
Did you know that 1 out of every 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime?
Did you know that 1 out of every 4 people will die from cancer?
I can definitely tell you when I look around at all my precious family members and friends, trying to imagine life without 25% of them is unfathomable. That's why I participate in this amazing event.
Cancer has already affected too many people I know, so I'm making a personal commitment to ride 65 miles (you gotta ride through Granville, right?!) and raise $1,500 for lifesaving cancer research. I hope you will join me in this important endeavor, so my kids and yours don't have to suffer from these tragic statistics.
Thank you in advance for your words of encouragement, inspiring stories, and financial support. As the saying goes, It takes a village, but TOGETHER WE CAN PUT AN END TO CANCER ONCE AND FOR ALL.
