EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2014
~~I wanted to let you know that I have elected to embark on a challenge and joined “Team In Training” for a 100 mile bike ride. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training is the largest fund-raising program of its kind in the world. I will be riding with this team through the most scenic and awe- inspiring countryside of “America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride®”. We will be challenging steep hills and daring descents of this 100 mile course around Lake Tahoe on June 1st 2014. I will be completing this bike ride for a reason much more important than the personal challenge. As a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training program, I have pledged to ride on behalf of family and friends whose lives have been effected by this disease and to help raise money for leukemia research and patient assistance programs.
My goal is to raise $5000 by April 15, 2014. I need your support!!
I know that in every bead of sweat and in each beat of my heart brings us closer to that ultimate finish….THE CURE. It doesn’t come easy. But I can give you an easier way to help…your donation for my hard work. Allow me to ride with your name upon my jersey and you can be part of this journey. For your convenience … please visit my website. Your donation is payable to: LLS upon receipt of your donation, I will place your name on a ribbon and pin it to my jersey…you can ride with me in spirit

With the generosity of people like you, there is every reason to believe that a cure is in sight!
In closing thank you for reading my letter, I am excited by this endeavor and I am committed to seeing this through. In order for me to see this through I need your help by way of donations.
