Hello friends, Its that time of year again when I reach out to all my friends, neighbors and former work associates in my attempt to raise money for a worthy and noble cause, The American Lung Association. No one should struggle to breathe. But people with breathing problems have to struggle every day. As someone diagnosed with exercised induced asthma I appreciate what it is like for those with much more serious issues than mine. That is why I am participating in Reach the Beach.
I make this appeal to each and every of you, to think how fortunate you are to be in good health and then donate to my ride. Any donation to my effort would be very much appreciated. I have set a modest goal this year of $1000 but I would really like to excede that, possibly even double it. Help me, along with the American Lung Association, to support the FIGHT FOR AIR.
As you know from previous years the ride is 104 miles and it takes place on May 18th this year. It will be my 9th year and hopefully not my last. It's also considered my birthday ride where I ride the number of miles equal to my birthday. But as I will be 71 on the day of the ride this year, it is a few extra. I will also be doing my first century ride on my new ankle. Thank you for joining this important fight for children with asthma, teens who are pressured to start smoking, people with lung cancer and emphysema, and everyone who wants to breathe healthy air in our communities. To donate just go to Reach the Beach 2019 and click on the donate tab. Enter my name and it will take you to my page. You can then make your donation.
Thank you again in advance for any amount you can donate.
