I'm Doing This For You.

Pin It

When asked who I wished to dedicate my ride to, I had a realization.

I am not only riding for those who are currently battling cancer (love you Gary). I am not only riding for those whose battle is over. I am not only riding so that I can have giant quads and a sore butt. 

Ultimately, I am riding for the living. I ride for my parents, who are thankfully healthy and active, but like all others, are not immune to the threat of this disease. I ride for my brother, my partner, my friends, my coworkers, and my extended family. I ride for those I love and care about, with a desperation and hope that in some small way, I can intervene in the possibility that cancer may affect them too. I do not wish to wait until cancer comes knocking; instead, I want to get out in front of it, and kick it in the face, to do my part to find a cure.

So to all of those who have generously supported my ride, thank you. I’m doing this for you. Together, we are making a difference in the fight against cancer.
