Why I Participate:
This November I am participating in a charity event through an organization, Pedal the Cause. It is a two day bike ride to benefit cancer research. As many of you know we lost a dear friend and valuable member of the community a couple months ago, Marlena Poulin. She left this world far too early after her fight with cancer. Lisa and I met Marlena and her husband Patrick through our charity work with Las Patronas. Marlena was a very important member of Las Patronas and her impeccable sense of style and infectious enthusiasm brought joy to all of us. I am dedicating my ride this year to the memory of Marlena, so that we may never again have to endure such a devastating loss.
That is motivation enough for me to join the thousands of other riders, volunteers, sponsors, donors, family and friends and participate in this year's Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. PEDAL is about two things: raising awareness and raising money for cancer research. This November at PEDAL 2016 I'm committing to ride 162 miles (100 on day one) and raise $5,000 for cancer research in the hopes of realizing our goal: a world without cancer.
Please help me in this journey by making a donation, and give with confidence knowing that all proceeds go directly to accelerating cancer research at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.
