The 11th Annual Cycle the Seacoast ride, originally scheduled for May 3, 2020, has gone virtual! Instead of riding in person, the American Lung Association asked each of us to ride 25, 50, or 100 miles before June 30, 2020. At the live event, I would have ridden 50 miles, but for my virtual ride, I committed to riding 100 miles over four consecutive weekends.
I completed those 100 miles Sunday, May 24. Most of those miles were through the deserted streets of Boston and included some historic sites, spring gardens, urban architecture, and water views.
As in the past, the purpose of the ride is to raise money to support the American Lung Association and their fight against lung cancer, COPD, asthma, and other serious lung diseases. If the current pandemic has taught us anything, it's that lung disease is a moving target.
Your involvement in Cycle the Seacoast is currently supporting COVID-19 research. American Lung Association researcher Dr. John Schoggins, Ph.D., was recently credited with identifying a naturally occurring protein that has been shown to inhibit coronavirus infection. Thank you for supporting this work!
Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation in support of the American Lung Association.
