This is dedicated to my brother-in-law, Erick Buiting, a victim of lung disease at the tragically young age of 31. I hope that my small efforts will contribute to preventing our world from losing such special people far too soon!
As someone who has also had to deal with asthma, I can tell you personally that lung disease can take someone's breath away, leaving them unable to work, exercise or play. 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.
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!
