Let’s make sure everyone can benefit from healthy air and lungs.
As many of you know I have participated in this event for the last 7 years. I'll be biking 105 miles from Portland, OR to Pacific City, OR on May 18th, 2019 in support of the American Lung Association and its efforts to combat lung disease. This ride is extremely challenging with an elevation gain of more than 2100 feet over 105 miles. The ride traverses over some of Oregon’s most scenic and challenging landscapes. This ride pales in comparison to what those faced with lung disease have to endure. This hits close to home as my wife Laura's Father succumbed to lung cancer in 2010. I personally have also struggled with Asthma since early childhood. I will be riding, as I have in years past, in Mick Arnold's memory. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will help me achieve my goal.
My Personal Web Log
We are sooo pleased to announce that our team has an official sponsor . Oregon Design Shop in Springfield, OR will be designing our Jerseys and providing our teams gear for the big ride in May. Also, we will be producing a video with Irish Clan Productions highlighting Oregon Design Shop and our teams training efforts. Exciting times for this event.
We also want to thank Ninkasi Brewing, Deschutes Brewing , Pint Pot Tap house and Old 99 Brewing for co- sponsoring us. Of course all of our individual sponsors who have provided the " springboard " for our success in our attempt to wipe out Lung Disease.
Thank you all!!!!
Patrick and Laura.
