For the fifth year in a row, I am participating in the Trek Across Maine, a 3-day, 180-mile cycling event celebrating its 36th year supporting the American Lung Association. As the largest fundraising event of its kind in the nation for the American Lung Association, the Trek has raised more than $25 million in the past 30+ years.
I will be joining nearly 2,000 cyclists and 750 volunteers on this one of a kind journey this Father’s Day Weekend.
My continued participation in this experience assists the American Lung Association’s efforts to help people suffering from lung disease in our communities by
- advocating for clean air in schools, the workplace and public places by reducing pollution
- lobbying for FDA oversight over tobacco products and petitioning for health insurance coverage of tobacco cessation treatments
- supporting research to find better methods of detection, treatment and cures for all lung diseases
- continuing to fund, develop, promote and advocate for programs that will result in life-changing advances for people impacted by lung disease.

Training and riding in this event has not only allowed me to support the health of others, but has also improved my own personal health and fitness.
As a physician, I know this cause is important but it also affects my wife Nicole’s personal health so I’ve set my goal this year at $2000.
I’m confident that I can get there, but I need your help.
Won’t you consider making a donation on my behalf?
Any amount makes a difference and you can be certain that your gift has the power to help people breathe easier and will change lives forever.
Thank you for your help in supporting this wonderful organization!
