On Sunday, January 12, 2020 I made the committment to ride the 50 mile Cycle the Seacoast fundraiser for the American Lung Association scheduled for Sunday May 3, 2020. After a lifelong battle, I also quit smoking that day and this goal has kept me focused. The ride has gone virtual this year due to COVID-19, so I can do whatever ride and length I want to before June 30th. My daughter Jenny did this ride last year and has inspired me to keep setting higher goals, especially in cycling. I have decided to ride 55 miles on my 55th birthday in early June from Manchester, NH to the Seacoast to celebrate my new life without cigarettes and to inspire others to quit as well!
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. The Amercian Lung Association is also doing a lot to help with the current epidemic.
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 your support!
