My Ride to Conquer Cancer - Year 4
I decided to start my fourth year of participation on May 1, three and a half months ahead of the ride. I have many fond memories from 2012-2014 when I was able to ride with so many inspirational people in support of such an important cause. I was touched by their determination to make a difference and it turned out that I had a positive impact on them as well.
The biggest reason I have for being involved again this year is that I see it as an incredible positive journey that celebrates the human spirit. Cancer has touched me personally in many negative ways and it caused me to go through some difficult times at a young age. I have seen the terrible impact it has had on others around me and I feel it is a triumphant moment when we gather together on August 26 to ride to Seattle and to party together for two days. The tens of millions of dollars already raised by this event have funded ground-breaking research and my oncologist Dr. Chi is there every year to ride as proof of this impact.
I have decided to dedicate this ride to my friend Ted who died three years ago. I have also asked that the funds I have raised go to help children's cancers and breast cancer as these are two areas I see as having great need.
