Riding the Clean Air Challenge is personal for me.
Fifteen years ago, my wife Patty Ginsburg was diagnosed with life-threatening lung cancer. She survived, miraculously, and since then we've both done everything we can to keep others from facing this scourge -- or to help them deal with it if they do.
That's why I'm joining thousands of other cyclists and the American Lung Association to raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health. And I'm proud to ask for your help.
Seven years ago, I rode my bike all the way from Seattle to Washington DC to raise funds for the Lung Association. This year, coming off back surgery a few months ago, my goals are a bit more modest. But I'll be riding the Clean Air Challenge and I hope you'll support me with a contribution. I've given what I can personally and hope you will, too.
Lung disease can take someone's breath away, leaving them unable to work, exercise or play. Growing faster than almost any other major illness, lung disease, including lung cancer, asthma and emphysema, is the third leading cause of the death in the United States.
Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation.
Thank you in advance for you support!
