Biking 1000 Miles for Breast Cancer
Organized by: Samuel Dunkel
My goal is simple - I am trying to raise $1000.00 by biking 1000 miles to donate to Team Monika - a group of women who raise money themselves for the Avon Walk Charity.
Monika is my mother, she passed away in 1989 after a hard battle with breast cancer. I was young, and I don't have many memories of her, and I cherish the ones that I do. I do remember that she didn't give up. She beat cancer once, she fought to live.
My sister, Johanna, has been the crusader in my family, working hard to fight this awful disease. She has been part of organizing Team Monika - a team for the Avon Walk Charity. Team Monika has been raising money for several years now and has been an inspiration to me to get involved.
Now I am ready to help this cause. That is why I am going to put 1000 miles on my bicycle over the summer - Starting on Mothers day and ending on Labor day. 16 weeks - 62.5 miles per week.
Breast cancer took my mother away and I want to help find a way to make sure this doesn't have to happen to someone else. With your help and generosity, maybe we can make breast cancer a thing of the past.
