The Story

EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016

DEADLINE TO GIVE: May 20, 2016

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: May 21, 2016

In June of 2009 our dad, Bob Miller, was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. An avid cyclist for over 20 years, he was very involved with the Seattle based Cascade Bicycle Club and rode his bike 4-5 days a week year round. His lung cancer diagnosis came as a complete shock. It was just one of those incredibly cruel twists of fate. By the time he was diagnosed, the cancer had spread throughout his entire body. He was given about a year to live. 

 

On July 1st, 2010 he passed away at home surrounded by his family. During his last week he wanted us to know even after he was gone he would live forever in our memories. And he does. His memory lives on in the research funded in his name, and in the future lives that we hope to save. For more information about our foundation, check out our website here.

 

Join us for our second, annual spin cycle event in support of early detection lung cancer and clinical trial research. Whether you ride hard or hardly ride, we hope you will join us and the talented team at Power Sculpt Fitness for an afternoon of sweat, fun and camaraderie.
