BENEFITING: TOWER CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: TOWER CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION
EVENT: Ride for CFG
On December 6th, I will be participating in a charity cycling event at Soul Cycle in Beverly Hills to raise money for Cancer Free Generation (CFG). Those of you who know me well, know that I do not inherently enjoy exercise (don't tell the other physical therapists!!!). However, a few years ago, I met a young woman in her late 20's named Erika who's main goal for physical therapy was to return to her Soul Cycle classes. She had lost much strength and energy undergoing breast cancer treatment and battling her disease. Heartbreakingly, she passed before she was able to meet this goal.
When I find myself whining over something like having to exercise, I think of Erika and snap out of it. I replace the whine with gratitude for having a body capable of exercise. I have some many blessings.
So I will be riding for Erika, and all of those who's lives have been directly or indirectly touched by cancer.
Please consider donating to my ride! Trust me, NO amount is too small! At this point, I mostly expect I'll be writing a big check from my own account, because I'm TERRIBLE at fundraising, so any amount would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
