THE STORY:

**DONATE $50+ and you'll get to put a survivor's name on my shirt! (details below)


My name is Matt and I consider myself a fitness nutball! From American Ninja Warrior, to setting two world records for lifting 1 million pounds in the gym, I crave to push myself with each fitness endeavour.  On January 13-14, in Australia, I'm competing in Revolve 24 (http://revolve24.com), a 24-hour bicycle race where my goal is to complete 200-250 miles!  This event is only in its 2nd year, and I'll be the FIRST AMERICAN EVER to compete in it!  USA USA USA!  


I'm choosing to push my body and mind as far as it will go for 24 hours.  The charity this ride benefits is called YACS (Young Adult Cancer Support - www.cancercaring.org/yacs), a program of the Cancer Caring Center. YACS helps support young adults who don't have a choice but to battle each and every 24 hour period of their lives during treatment and also in recovery.  I've met most YACS group members and they are strong-willed, funny, and beautiful survivors who need OUR help!  The treatments are expensive and the recovery is stressful.  YACS helps relieve the financial burden for them by offering financial assistance grants.  The program also alleviates their stress by providing free social nights for all group members once a month.  Socials include Pirate games, kayaking, paint nights, or anything where a bunch of laughs can be had in a fun, inviting environment! 100% of your donation will go directly to these young individuals battling cancer...100%!  


My wife, Steph is an 12 year leukemia survivor and runs YACS which is incredible and extremely close to my heart.  She is a leader and has a true passion for doing ANYTHING she can to help these young adults cope with their diagnosis.  It takes an amazing person to lead this group and remain positive in the face of some tough situations.  She's the most inspiring, brave, selfless person I know and I hope you can find a little room in your heart to donate a bit to our cause!  


If you donate $50 or more, and have someone who is currently battling cancer, I'd love to ride for them!  I will add their name to the jersey I will be wearing for this event, so please email me: matthew.scoletti@gmail.com or call/text me: 412-580-1834 with the person you'd like me to ride for.  Rider for Survivors!  


Thank you to ON TARGET LIVING (http://ontargetliving.com/) for sponsoring this event and being the reason I completely turned my life around and got healthier 5+ years ago!  If you buy anything on their website, they gave me a discount code to use for 20% off your whole order!  Add "Scoletti20" as a discount code and it will be applied to your order!


If you'd rather send a check, please do!

Make the check out to "Cancer Caring Center" and please put "YACS" in the memo field.  Then, mail your check to:
