Friends and Family,
I'm back for a fourth year! Over the past three years I have survived torential downpours, withering heat waves, and everything inbetween! To date, my fund-raising has put more than $21,000 into Dana Farber Cancer research and the Boston Bruins Foundation team and its 33 riders each year have put more than 500k into cancer research! I'm very proud to be a part of such a dedicated group of fantastic people determined to leave the world better than when they found it!
As I set my goal of training for over 1000 of miles I'm again raising my fund-raising goal from last year's $8000 to a new $9000 total! My primary fund-raiser this year will be a 3-v-3 hockey tournament on May 20th where I hope to raise the bulk of my fund-raising amount. This 7-person hockey tournament is so much fun for the participants . So many volunteers donate their time and so many local businesses donate their wares, it really exemplifies how fantastic humanity can be!
If you're interested in playing - let me know!
My campaign slogan is usually "Attitude of Gratitude" but given the difficult political times we live in, I am going to change it up and go with "Together we're so much more!". As a BBF team mate we accomplish and push each other to ever greater challenges and accomplishments! Don't get me wrong, I'll always be greatful for the wonderful country and life I enjoy but we need to come together as a nation and a people to make this world shine!
I'm riding in honor of the following family and friends!
- My Father, his brother, and hist sister who have all battled and beat cancer;
- My Mother's sister who lost her battle with Breast Cancer and her Brother who lost his battle with brain cancer;
- My best friend Darryl beat cancer twice and inspires us all with his own fund-raising rides in Niagara Canada!
- My best friend's wife who kicked breast cancer's butt!
- Two great friends who lost their battle with Cancer 2 years ago - Sean M. and Bob D.
- For all those who donated to my ride last year in memory of both survivors and those who passed on - I am again riding for your loved ones too!
Please make a tax deductible donation to this cause through this page and help find a cure for this terrible disease that strikes indiscriminately the people we love!
I have chosen to keep your donation amounts private because every donation, no matter how big or small is very important.
Thank-you for your generosity. I'm very grateful to have this opportunities once again!
