Why I Participate:
Please join me as I support local organizations working hard to find a cure for cancer. I had hoped to ride 25 miles and conquer Torrey Pines hill. Unfortunately, I broke a toe doing something much less honorable and will now cheer from the sidelines. My fundraising efforts are no less meaningful as we have all been afflicted or affected by cancer. In the past few years we've lost my father in law to lung cancer (never smoked a day in his life) and have a family history of other forms of cancer. And just in the past year, several dear friends have battled breast cancer. Two of these recent diagnoses came as a result of thorough and diligent physician exams. Without this early detection, it could have been another year before someone took another look.
Our team Bill's Angels is participating in Ride for a Child in conjunction with Rady Children's Hospital. As a team, we will ride and raise funds for live saving cancer research and care in honor of a very special young girl named Angelina, who is currently battling cancer and is stronger, sweeter and more spirited than you can ever imagine.
It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. PEDAL is committed to realizing that vision. 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 Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.
Thank you for your support.
