Last year many friends and family members generously gave to my fund raising effort to honor the memory of our daughter, Melissa, by making a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Those donations helped motivate me to keep a promise to Melissa and complete a personal goal of bicycling the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia and North Carolina.  The last leg was a 350 mile ride from Roanoke, VA to Cherokee, NC.  

I have been looking for bicycling rides that raise money for medical research and recently found the GA400, an event that raises funds for heart and vascular research at the Emory University Heart and Vascular Center in Atlanta.  Part of their research includes improvements in electrocardiology which is used in treating atrial fibrilation which affected me several years ago.  Therefore, I have set a modest goal of raising $200 for this event.  The GA400 is a one day event beginning in Roswell, GA and I will be riding a 60 mile circuit.   

Donations to the Emory Heart and Vascular Center in my name can be made by visiting my fundraising page at https://www.PledgeReg.com/3113/dougbaker.

All people, not only athletes, that participate in event rides like GA400 need Heart and Vascular research to help improve treatments of those diseases that keep us and loved ones around longer to enjoy our lives together.

I hope you'll consider making a donation of any amount to help me reach my fundraising goal! You can learn more about this great event at http://www.ga400century.com.

Thanks so much for your support!
