No one should struggle to breathe. That is why I am participating in Reach the Beach.
Please either join me and register for this event or make a donation to my efforts and help me, along with the American Lung Association, to support the FIGHT FOR AIR.
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.
I am riding for my 7th year in honor of Dee McCartney, who we lost December 4th, 2014 to lung cancer. She was an amazing woman - full of energy, enthusiasm, and went out of her way to welcome anyone and everyone. She will be missed, but will never be forgotten. )ver the years I have made each of the 26, 56, 76, and 104 mile rides, and continue to make these efforts to honor Dee's memory. I'll be riding the middle distance - 56 miles - this year.
Please help me by donating to the American Lung Association, where roughly 80% of funds raised go directly to programs. I have a personal goal of reaching $600.
