BENEFITING: COLON CANCER CHALLENGE FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Jul 17, 2015

Lisa Hoffman

THE STORY:

Nothing says you’re 50 better than a Colonoscopy and a Bike Ride.

Colonoscopy done now for some fun!

Not any ole bike ride, but one that gets you out of your comfort zone, out of your country and out of your saddle. So to celebrate being 50, I'm taking a CHALLENGE - recreating a bike ride I did when I was 25 - biking the Alps!

Thanks to some amazing friends and bike enthusiasts, or should I say fanatics, I will be joining them on July 17th for a 3-day bike ride in the Dolomites. I’ll be spinning up (and thankfully down) 7 Alp Passes and climbing over 2000 height meters each day! The anxiety builds because living in Brooklyn makes it challenging to train in the mountains.
.
To celebrate this milestone, I also wanted to DO SOMETHING for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF) as well. I have been on their Board of Directors for the past 5 years, and thought this would be a great way to support their efforts in funding the Annual Research Scholarship Award (ARSA) for 2015-2016 which focuses on hereditary and early age onset colorectal cancer (CRC).

We did it last year and need funding to continue our 2015 CCCF Research Fellow Kate McNamara at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre for next academic year. 

So, I am reaching out to YOU, not only to brag about my bike ride this summer (HA!), but to use my enormous effort of pedaling in the Dolomites as an incentive to give .

I’ll be posting my way up the Alpes – that way I can stop often and rest– and keep you posted.

Thank you for your support and see you in Italy!

Lisa
