Why We Ride

We ride for our friends and loved ones who suffer from lung cancer and all lung diseases. Let's make sure everyone can benefit from healthy lungs.

My name is Ann, and this is why I make Every Mile Count

Why I Ride: AnnThe human body is a pretty amazing life form. But sometimes things don’t work quite right. Disease, genetics, injuries and sometimes the unknown prevent organs such as our lungs from working properly. Now we have a new threat to lungs and other organs: novel coronavirus.

The American Lung Association researches and combats these threats to our lung health. The more they can research, the more likely they will find solutions or remedies.

I don’t have a personal connection to lung disease but I ride for the overall wellness of everyone. As a cyclist I appreciate clean air. I need the American Lung Association as my advocate for lung health.

My name is Joseph, and this is why I make Every Mile Count

Why I Ride: JosephI’ve been directly impacted by this scourge that is lung cancer. My father developed it when he was around my current age (early fifties) and passed when I was still a teenager. So you’ll understand why I will be forever motivated to support the cause and ensure the cure!

I cycle for my own health - yes, physical and mental, but now in these pandemic times social health as well... making this event a THREE-FOR-ONE health-improvement bonanza.
