Good Afternoon Everyone!
During the summer of last year I decided that I was going to get back on a bicycle and start riding again. In my early twenties I rode a lot and enjoyed the exercise as well as just being on the road. I also started walking and trying a healthier diet. For 2010 I have decided to participate in the LIVESTRONG Challenge-Philly! On Sunday, August 22 I will be riding 70mi.to benefit the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
As part of Team LIVESTRONG, I’m making a difference in the fight against cancer. I’ve joined with other people around the globe and across different events to raise money for LIVESTRONG. We may not all live in the same city or participate in the same sport but we’re united by hope, courage and determination.
The money I raise will go to support LIVESTRONG’s programs and services, which inspire and empower people affected by cancer. If you or someone you know is diagnosed, these resources will help face the challenges of cancer, head on, and live life on your own terms.
Please support me as I make a difference in the cancer fight through my participation in Team LIVESTRONG. Thank you!
