Thanks for visiting my personal fund raising page. This will be my 16th Trek! Once again I will be leading the Granite State Wheelers, and join the American Lung Association in a Trek Across Maine to raise money to support the fight against lung cancer, COPD, Asthma and other serious lung diseases.
So, what's different this year? It's a new route, but the same great ride! But from your standpoint, I'm not working as hard to raise funds. My Father's estate will support my 12th journey into the Winners Circle. I'm certainly happy, as is the American Lung Association to accept any donations, but if you felt any pressure or obligation in the past, the pressure's off!
So what does the American Lung Association do? For 115 years, the American Lung Association has led the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air. Did you know that lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of both men and women today? Another alarming fact is that lung disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States.The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease, through research, education and advocacy. Their work is focused on four strategic imperatives: to defeat lung cancer; to improve the air we breathe; to reduce the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families; and to eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases.
What's not different, is I appreciate your emotional support cheering me on as I ride for clean air for those who have trouble breathing. Becasue, when you can't breathe, nothing else matters!
