Why I Participate:
This year, I am riding for James Lee Meyer (1938-2018), who was like a father/grandfather to me since birth. He called me squirt and I enjoyed hearing stories about the ship yard where he was a Master Chief in the Navy. He taught me to play battleship. He always knew the perfect few words to say to me, and he didn't ever need to say much. He would tease and have a twinkle in his eye. I will miss him dearly and often. If it weren't for pancreatic cancer, he still be here today.
I am also riding for Steve Gibson, by friend Summer's dad. Steve is one of the best dad's I've witnessed. He is loving and supportive and wise. He works hard and continuously with a welding business in Lakeside. He battled cancer a year ago and has been living cancer free. So many people are behind this amazing, humble man and I ask for you to send healing and hopeful thoughts and prayers his way. The world is a much better place with him in it.
Personally, I have committed to spin on November 17th and raise $250 for cancer research. I hope you will support me in this journey and consider making a donation, of any size. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to fund cancer research in San Diego.
