Starting on July 19th, I will be riding my bicycle from the western end of Iowa across the state to the Mississippi river on the eastern border. The trip will be about 450 miles and take 6 days of pedaling. I decided to use this trip as a way to also help raise some money for the Livestrong foundation.
This past year I lost one of my very best lifelong friends, Marion, to a very aggressive form of brain cancer at the too young age of 59 and it helped remind me how lucky I am to call myself a cancer survivor. As part of Team LIVESTRONG, I'm making a difference in the fight against cancer.
I've joined with other people around the globe and across different events to raise money for the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
The Foundation serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to take action against this disease that is now the world's leading cause of death. LIVESTRONG has become a symbol of hope and inspiration to people affected by cancer around the world.
The money I raise will support programs and services for cancer survivors. These resources help people diagnosed with cancer face the challenges of the disease head on and live life on their own terms. Livestrong.org/WeCanHelp
Please support me as I make a difference in the cancer fight through my participation in Team LIVESTRONG. Thank you!
