Why I Participate:

This year I ride for Dyan, my wife's mother. Dyan made a profound impact on my life. She gave me the opportunity to start my own family. She was not just a mother but my wife's best friend.

The year before I met my wife Jenn, Dyan was lost to breast cancer. Her loss is still felt by those who knew her. Although I wish I had the opportunity to meet her and include her in my family, I am incredibly grateful for what she has given me.

Jenn and I's story is not unique. Many friends, coworkers and their families have been impacted directly and indirectly by cancer. Cancer treatment is improving with time from continuous study but it has a long way to go and we all can contribute.

The annual San Diego Pedal the Cause gives us a chance to take action to make a difference. Pedal the Cause supports collaborative early, cutting edge research at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego. This year I will be a virtual rider because I can't attend the event, but don't let that get in the way of donating to this amazing cause or joining my team.

You can track my training progress on Strava.
