Everything is Bigger in Texas

Last year's Skate for Prostate across Colorado was a great success as a result of your amazing support. We did it.... we saved lives. Just recently I found out that a friend's relative choose to get tested as a result of our efforts and was diagnosed early and cured of prostate cancer. This is what Skate for Prostate is all about.... to raise awareness and money for the early detection of prostate cancer.

As you know, 2012 was an inline skate of 395-miles across Colorado, from Wyoming to Oklahoma, in September of 2012.

This year I'm taking on TEXAS. You can view more about this event at www.crowdrise.com/skateforprostatetexas and www.facebook.com/skateforprostate.

Thank you again for believing in me and helping others with the early detection of this tough disease.

We did it! At 9:35 am MST on Sep 12 Rick Patch (who cycled by my side) and I celebrated reaching the Oklahoma border....7 days, 395 miles from the Wyoming border south through Colorado to the Oklahoma border. Our SAG team of Nikki Meyer and Regina Grage greeted us on the border. We would not have been able to complete the journey without them.

Your incredible donation gave me all the mental strength and physical energy I needed to complete this journey. Please know that you have made a big difference by helping increase prostate cancer awareness and education. Lives are being saved with your support.

Thank you so much.

Before I head up towards the WY border (in a car) in a few minutes I wanted to once again thank you for your amazing support.

Believe me, it's making a difference. PCEC, the non-profit that we are supporting, has had tons of calls and emails over the past few months from people inquiring about early detection and testing for prostate cancer. Lives are being saved.

I'll try and keep you updated while I'm on the road. And I hope to see you in Denver at the Breckenridge Brewery at 5 pm on Friday, Sep 7. That will be the 2nd day of my 8 day skate from Wyoming to Oklahoma.

My sincere thanks for words of encouragement and financial support.

The main purpose of my Skate for Prostate is to increase awareness and education of prostate disease. You donation to that cause has already made a huge difference because PCEC has more funds to provide free screenings, education, and awareness. Thank you.

For those donors in Colorado, I hope you can make the September 7 event. As you may already know, fellow prostate cancer survivor Coach George Karl of the Denver Nuggets will be our special guest at the September 7 event at the Breckenridge Brewery. So if you are here in Colorado please grab all your friends and come enjoy a beer or two, bid on some silent auction items, meet Bronco alumni, and support prostate cancer awareness and education.

I look forward to seeing you there. And thank you again for your amazing support.

Yesterday I met a man who's brother (a veteran) just the day before was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and unfortunately not in time as it had metastasized. He is 58 years old and was given 1 year to live.

This is exactly why I'm doing what I'm doing and why your support is so critical and appreciated. This man was never tested for prostate cancer and didn't know it was a simple blood test. If he was tested 5 years ago, he would have probably caught the disease before it became terminal.

So while my actual event is still 4 months away I'm active each day trying to raise awareness about this disease. And you can help in this regard...if you haven't already done so, please go to www.facebook.com/skateforprostate and "like" my page and "share" it will all your friends because this will help raise awareness.

Thank you again for supporting my cause and know that your donation will help save lives.

You are so appreciated.

Hi Rick,

I want to thank you for your awesome donation to a great cause. I believe our collective efforts will make a difference. Simply, if one man gains awareness and is tested early for prostate cancer, a life will potentially be saved.

I appreciate you!
