Why I Participate:

Friends & Family,

October 11th marks 18 years since my mother, Maryann, was taken from us at the young age of 46 after losing her long battle with Breast Cancer. It also marks 1 year since our "dude", Lauren's step-dad, lost his battle with Cancer, so as you can imagine, October 11th is a very special day for my family.

My mom was a woman that everyone wanted to be around & was ALWAYS the center of attention no matter where she was. She wanted nothing but the best for her children & always put them first. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think of her & wish she was still with us. One thing I miss the most is just being able to pick up the phone & call her just to say hi. Steve "Dude" Godfrey was also a man everyone wanted to be around. He had the warmest heart, a vast knowledge of EVERYTHING and welcomed our family into his instantaneously. His love for his wife, Julie, was bigger than you could imagine and he wanted nothing but the best for his children, step-children and grandchildren. I miss the days where we would tee it up, drink a few bloody marys and have a "dude" reuben the day after Thanksgiving with him!

That's why this year, on November 17th, I'm once again committing to ride the 55 mile Olympic Challenge as part of Team 19 in the Padres Pedal the Cause in honor of my mom, dude & everyone else that has been affected by this disease. I am challenging myself to raise $5,000 for cancer research in the hopes of realizing our goal: a world without cancer.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Padres Pedal is committed to realizing that vision. Please help me with a donation & give knowing that all proceeds go directly to accelerating cancer research at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, the Salk Institute, & Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.

Thank you for considering a donation to my ride in support of our efforts to end cancer. I am hoping that one day, EVERYONE will be able to pick up the phone & call their loved ones or have a bloody and a reuben with them!

My sincerest thanks,
Ryan
