I am joining thousands of other cyclists and the American Lung Association to raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health.
I ride in honor of my sister Wendy who battled with a form of lung cancer. Wendy was very healthy and never smoked before being stricken by this desease. She passed away due to the cancer last year. Ironically, the Treck Across Maine for the American Lung Association was very important to Wendy long before she had cancer. She rode the three day fund raising trek for years.
I fund raised and rode in the Trek last year in honor of my sister Wendy. I am riding again this year because I see the work being done by the American Lung Association, and I see the dedication of everyone involved with the Trek. I can’t think of a more fitting way to continue to honor my sister’s memory.
Lung disease can take someone's breath away, leaving them unable to work, exercise or play. Growing faster than almost any other major illness, lung disease, including lung cancer, asthma and emphysema is the third leading cause of the death in the United States.
Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation.
Thank you in advance for you support!
