For 2017, my goal is to raise $10,000 for ERRACE.org Last year I rode 300 miles in a single day because I met my goal. This year, my challenge is to ride a century (100 miles) for every $1,000 raised on consecutive days leading up to the July 8th event. Hopefully, I will begin 10 days prior and ride 1,000 miles, concluding on July 8th.
Thank you for your continued support. As most of you know, I do this ride in memory of my sister in law Susan who we lost to cancer a year and a half ago. This year, in addition to riding in Susan's memory, I am riding in honor of my cycling friend, Daren Casey of the Cycling Concepts Race Team who is currently undergoing treatment at the Helen and Harry Gray Cancer Center, one of our ride benefactors.

The beneficiaries are the Hartford Hospital Helen and Harry Gray Cancer Center of Avon, and the LiveStrong Foundation.
The ERRACE organization was created by a group of professionals with common goals. Together we strive to raise the awareness of cancer, raise funds for cancer research and to inspire the community to be active and health conscious.
We bring together our expertise from multiple aspects of business management, healthcare, community work, fund-raising and athletic endeavors. We are excited to share a fun, safe and inspiring event with the community for years to come.
We thank you for participating in our event and raising funds to ERRACE cancer forever!
