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 will be training during the next six months to ride 180 miles in mountainous Maine over three days in June.
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. It kills more people worldwide than any other disease and contributes to numerous other fatal diseases. With the current vaping trend, I'm concerned we will see an even faster rise in lung disease in the next generation.
In my lifetime, I have watched three close friends, two grandfathers, and my dear Dad painfully die from lung disease. Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation. Or sign up to ride with me! (https://action.lung.org/site/TR?fr_id=18638&pg=entry)
Thank you in advance for you support!
