Universal Shorts Brewing Racing
I have been an Onoclogy Nurse for over 30 years and I have decided to give back to my cancer patients by raising money for Less Cancer. I plan to ride over 100 miles. This will be challenge for me but I feel that I am inspired by my patients. I often think of them when I want to quit, then I think about how my patients can't quit. They don't have the option of not getting another day of chemo. This is the least I can do for all of them as struggle they each day. I joined a racing team, Universal Shorts Brewing, This team encompasses both men and women of all skill levels. Everyone races to the best of their ability and are inspired and supported by each other. My teammates encourage me to push harder and keep going each day. There is a parallel in my role as an Oncology Nurse and a remember of this racing team. We are all in together and we can fight and win when we have the support of each other.
Less Cancer Bike Ride Split the Mitt 2019
This summer, we’re getting back on the road. Since 2012, the Less Cancer Ride has evolved from a few excited, dedicated advocates into an ever-growing community of cyclists who want to change how the world looks at cancer.
The ride is something big, and our inspiring Team Less Cancer is getting there in style. Our seasoned crew of riders is riding to the ride all the way from Midland, Michigan. At over 100 miles, they'll be honoring the hard work that goes into spreading the Less Cancer mission, as well as the effort, sacrifice, and lessons learned along the way. Their ride will culminate at The Cowell Family Cancer Center, Traverse City Michigan to meet and great riders who are eagerly awaiting the big community ride on Sunday morning.
And it's Sunday that we're counting on YOU to join us for. Any distance, any pace, every effort adds up. The ride, the route, and the feeling of accomplishment are your reward, as well as great food and excellent fun along the way!
It’s not a race, it’s a journey. Go fast, go slow, but go with the confidence that your efforts to ride and fundraise have a big impact on individuals, families, and entire communities around the nation and in forty countries around the globe. Simply by pedaling the path to prevention, you can make a difference in the fight against cancer.
