Last year I had the privilege of participating in the American Lung Association’s 2018 Reach the Beach fund raising ride.
I was lucky to be part of the special group of individuals who came together to form Team Strong4Jon in support of friend and colleague Jon Emerick.
Jon Emerick was a Seattle Police Officer for over 30 years, and he was more than that he was a husband, father, brother, and an uncle.
Three and a half years ago Jon was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. He and his family fought a long & courageous battle.
Sadly, we lost Jon in May of this year.
The determination Jon showed in his battle with this terrible disease inspires me to this day.
From the time he was diagnosed to the end, Jon was supported by his entire family and best friend, Seattle Police Detective Randy Higa.
Sadly, after losing Jon, Randy was also diagnosed with lung cancer. Now he and his family could use our support.
I am riding to show the Emerick's and the Higa's how much they are loved, and to support a fellow officer.
Together, we ride to raise money for The American Lung Association. Without their efforts, finding a cure would not be possible.
Please support our team by making a donation to show the Emerick's and the Higa's are not alone
Thank you in advance for your support!
