On June 18th, I will be joining Michael's friends on this bike ride to benefit Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
Dana Farber will forever be my charity of choice; they are amazing people that do amazing things. Michael had the BEST team - they gave him and our family 17 months of life, love and laughter that he wouldn't have had if it weren't for them.
It's been over 18 months since I last clipped into my pedals and now I ride solo - but I know Michael is riding along with me in spirit.
A heartfelt 'Thanks' to Michael's friends for organizing this team in his memory! Let's do this!!
I look forward to pedaling my way through the pioneer valley to raise money for DANA-FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE with Bikes Fight Cancer. These life saving funds will relieve the burden of disease now and for the future through our research, clinical care, education, outreach and advocacy. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's ultimate goal is the eradication of cancer, and related diseases and the fear that they engender. Please support my ride, and help create a future free of cancer.
LOVE BIKES. HATE CANCER.
