Why I Ride:
Cancer is affecting my life every day now. I have lost several friends to this terrible disease in the last few years and have at least a dozen currently battling it. I participated in the Padres Pedal last year for the first time surpassing my goal of $10,000. I came away so inspired and invigorated by the event that I decided this year I wanted to do more. I am trying to raise $25,000 and hope you will help me do it!
Through my involvement, I have had the chance to get to know some of the leading edge cancer doctors in the United States and they are confident we are close to finding a cure for several types of cancer in the next year or two. This ride is for my many friends and family members who are either currently going through chemo/radiation or in thankfully in remission now.
Padres Pedal is committed to creating 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 Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.
