   Congrats! Keep going!

A little over two years ago, cancer took the life of a man who always appeared invincible to me. Uncle Mark loved hard and lived life fully. Despite the fact that he could only hear half of what was said, he belly laughed always. His family was his foundation and his grandchildren his world. He was beside me on my baptism and celebrated at my sons baptism. His passing was the catalyst that launched a wild idea to ride in his memory. To honor this man, a man who meant so much to so many is a privilege.


Mark isn’t my only reason for riding though, you see, my family isn’t short on survivors either. My amazing cousin Ryan who has bravely fought and won for years, raising a beautiful family and showing grace always. My other two uncles who were diagnosed within less than a year of one another. Mark’s sweet Grandma Joyce has also weathered this storm and won. Our fire family too has has faced this beast head on, with our kind and courageous friend Christine who while working, keeping her crazy fire family life on track and raising two children fought and beat lymphoma. Talk about a rockstar!


While I can’t create a cure, I can ride to help inspire hope and to honor those who still fight. Most important to me this year, I ride to honor the memory of my never endingly funny, vintage car loving uncle Mark and so many (way too many) others. 


Founded in 2008, Pelotonia was established with the objective to fund life-saving cancer research. Focused on a community of passionate fundraisers and centered around a three-day experience of cycling, entertainment, and volunteerism, the Pelotonia community has raised more than $157 million for high-risk, high-reward cancer research. Last year, 8,022 Riders from 39 states and 7 countries participated along with 3,576 Virtual Riders and 3,044 Volunteers. Please join me in supporting this cause, where 100% of your donation will go directly towards cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
