On June 15th, I will join more than two thousand 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. This is my 20th year as a Trek participant!
I will be riding with Carrabassett Cycology, the Sugarloaf Community Team. I will be riding in memory of my brother-in-law Daryl who died in October 2013 after a 30-year battle with lung cancer, and my Dad who died of cancer during my secoind Trek acorss Maine ride in 2000. I am also riding for my friend Helen, who struggles with severe asthma and COPD, and all the others who deal with the same challenges every day, with every breath. I am extremely concerned with the number of "bad air" days that we have here in Maine and up and down the East coast: it used to be just a few days a year during the summer, now it is a few days a week all year long---inexcusable!!!
Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation. Every donation helps me up the hills, or through the heat or rain, and will help all of us breathe easier.
Thank you for you support!
