June 13,14, and 15, I will again join thousands of other cyclists and the American Lung Association in a journey across Maine while raising money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health.
For the past several years, you have generously helped me to raise money to support this cause which is dear to my heart. Both my mother and my father had emphysema. Good friends of mine have children with Cystic Fibrosis. Almost everyone is touched in some way by lung disease.
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. And please pray for the safety of the riders.
Thank you in advance for your support!
