Welcome to my 2017 Personal Fundraising Page!
Thank you very much for visiting my fundraising page. I have a hard time believing that it has already been 4 years since I started riding for Ride to Conquer Cancer, and this is my 5th year fundraising for it. I remember feeling very nervous and anxious in my first year, but I also remember I was very lucky to have experienced the sunniest Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2013. I had originally intended to ride alone when I first signed up for the Ride but Jimi, the captain of Riders for Ryders contacted me to join the team. Ever since then I have been connecting with a lot of people and got to meet great team members and share the journey together.
I shaved my head 4 years ago on World Cancer Day, February 4th to raise awareness about my first year riding for Ride to Conquer Cancer. I have been growing my hair for the last 4 years, and when I reach my fundraising goal of $3333, I will donate my hair. 2017 being my 5th year, and planning to donate my hair, I am determined to make this year an even more special one.
When I first registered for Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2013, I did not have a specific "story" to tell about how cancer has affected my life. I just wanted to be part of something big, that fights a disease that could easily affect me personally. My grandmother was diagnosed with terminal cancer later, and passed away in 2014. Even without meeting people through Ride to Conquer Cancer, unfortunately it's not hard to meet someone who was, or currently is affected by cancer. But every time I stand at the start line on my first day of Ride to Conquer Cancer, listening to the speech of the cancer survivors, it gives me hope that the fund we raise has saved people.
I never take the generous support I receive from everyone for granted, and I cannot thank you enough especially those of whom have supported me with donations every year for the last 4 years. Without your help I could not keep going and your generosity and kindness and encouragement keeps me motivated. So thank you very much, and I will have another photo of myself holding my bike above my head triumphantly added to my Ride to Conquer Cancer photo album this August.
