This June 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.
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.
Trek 2022 will be my first Trek and I'm totally excited to be on this long trip with many friends from our regular weekend rides. I ride for friends who were all tragically affected by lung-related diseases within their families, and for the range of scientific enforts involved with indoor and outdoor air quality, pollution indexing, and climate science in general, all of which directly impact our lung health.
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 support!!
