Between May 1 and June 30, I will join thousands of other cyclists and the American Lung Association in a virtual journey across Maine while raising money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health. I will participate in the first, and hopefully the last, virtual Trek Across Maine. My performance goal is to achieve at least 800 miles of riding between the first week of May and the end of June.
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. The Covid-19 pandemic, and the American Lung Association's commitment to devote $25 million to address Covid-19 and other emerging viral threats makes this year's virtual event even more significant.
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!
