Two years ago my step-brother Andy Ecker passed away after a long and hard-fought battle with brain cancer. He was one of the most loving, inquisitive, and caring people I have ever encountered; always ready with a kind word, always willing to teach, always excited to learn from those around him. Many of my friends never had a chance to meet Andy, though you have all seen his influence on me. Please help me honor Andy's memory by sponsoring my ride at the second annual Race for ACE. Your donation goes to the Making Headway Foundation, which supports children in their battles with brain and spinal cancers.
