Welcome to my fundraising page!
To raise money for Beads of Courage, I will be riding in this year's 39th Banner-University Medicine 2022 El Tour de Tucson bicycling event on 11/19/2022 along with my wife Carol. The mission of Beads of Courage is to provide innovative arts-in-medicine programs that improve the quality of life of children and youth coping with cancer and other serious illnesses. I am very excited to raise money for an organization I believe in, and one that brought great joy to Grace during her stays in the hospital and clinics. The different beads represent everything she went through during her treatments. You can learn more about the event at https://beadsofcourage.org/el-tour-de-tucson. I hope you are able to contribute.
Thank you for your support and any amount that you can give!
