Hello my friends,
I have committed to join many other cyclists and the American Lung Association in a journey across Maine while raising 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. Having lost my father to lung cancer and with my mother using an oxygen tank, the fight for healthy air and increased awareness of these challenges are close to home for me.
Now I am asking for your help and support.
As many of you may know, this will be my 17th riding of the Trek Across Maine. This is an organization and cause that I am 100% committed to. I will be volunteering at the beginning and end of the ride assisting riders who are taking the bus to and from the Trek. I am also on the Maine Leadership Board and the Northeast Leadership Board. As a further statement of my commitment I have pledged $1,000 to the Trek via the United Way as a way to put my money where my bike is.
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 continued support!!
