Hi! This is Ray/Gonzo, again this year I want you to join me as a sponsor to ride 160 miles for lung cancer. But, this year I lost my best friend to cancer.
As you know I have committed to join many other cyclists and the American Lung Association in a journey across Cape Cod for 3 days 160 miles of cycling to raise money to support the fight against lung cancer, COPD, Asthma and other serious lung diseases. Among my goals is to increase awareness about the importance of lung health.
I decided to ride the Autumn Escape Bike Trek for Lung Cancer in September 27, 2013 because my best and dear friend Darryle Hawes had lung cancer and the spreading stopped.
On September 29, 2013 on the final 3rd day of the Autumn Escape Bike Trek as I crossed the finish line I received an urgent call from my family that my only brother Sindo Figueroa just died of Lung Cancer.
On July 2016 my dear and beloved friend Darryle Hawes lost his battle with cancer. A heavy lost in my life.
So, I continue and ride to honor my best friend, my brother and the thousands of people who has died of/or have lung cancer. The Rockland County Riders wants to fund raise $5,000.00 I personally am trying to target $3,000.
Please join me again if you can find it in your heart to sponsor me.
May God bless you and your family with health regardless if you donated or not.
Thank you in advance for your kind support!!
