2018 marks the sixth time Kate and I have committed to join many other cyclists and the American Lung Association in a journey across Cape Cod. We raise money to support the fight against lung cancer, COPD, Asthma and other serious lung diseases. Among my goals is to increase awareness about the importance of lung health. I am kicking off my fundraising with a self-donation of $100.
I started joining rides to benefit the American Lung association in 2007, participating twice in the Trek Across Maine before finding a team here in Massachusetts for the Autumn Escape Bike Trek. The Mechanix team have been great fun to train, plan, and ride with. In addition to the comraderie and the great cause, I ride to remember my father's battle lung cancer back in 1984.
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. Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation. Ask your HR Department about matching gifts and see your donation double in support of my efforts and the mission of the American Lung Association.
Thank you in advance for your support!!
