I’m looking forward to riding 55 miles in honor of all those battling cancer. Like many of you I have had a first row seat to the outstanding care provided to our loved ones battling this devastating disease. You many have also witnessed a long-term care facility like we did and feel that we can do better. Please help me support patients coping with cancer treatment live the best lives they can and donate at the link below.
This will be my first time on a long-distance bike ride. I’ve been conditioning my legs (and rear-end), and hope it is more enjoyable than grueling despite the 3000 feet of elevation gain. Nevertheless, the pain will pale in comparison to what so many endure.
Please consider donating $5.50 or whatever you can to the Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills to support the care, treatment, education and prevention of cancer.
