This is my third year participating in the Dempsey Challenge. The Patrick Dempsey (yes THAT Patrick Dempsey) Center for Cancer Hope and Healing treats cancer patients for free. Their services include, but are not limited to things like massages for patients to relax them before treatments, help with organizing their finances, educational classes for the patients and their families, etc. On October 9th, 2011 I will be riding my bicycle 100 miles for this cause. My goal is to raise over $10000 again. In my first two years, I have raised a total of over $18,600. Every dollar raised helps patients continue to receive the free services of this lovely center.
