Why I Participate:
This is my 4th year riding Padres Pedal the Cause. On November 17, I will ride my bicycle 100 miles to raise awareness for cancer research and to honor those who have both won or lost their battle with this insidious disease.
My hope is that through funding life saving research some people with cancer may have more time with their families or be cured. I am riding and raising money so that kids with cancer may become adults and inspire others to give back to find cures and better treatments.
This year I've committed to raise a minimum of $5000 for this charity, but the more I raise the more impact we can have together. In addition to fundraising I am team captain for Illumina, Inc. (where I work). Our technology enables personalized medicine today by providing genetic analysis tools for cancer research and in the future we'll have additional tests to directly improve standard of care in oncology.
Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride.
Join me! Thank you!
