This year I'm training
to ride in two
On Sunday, August 23, I'll participate in the Philadelphia
LIVESTRONG Challenge, where I hope to raise $7,500 (with
course!). I will ride 65 miles throughout the
Philadephia area with about 3,000 other participants
(Lance Armstrong will be on the Pro Circuit this year,
so he won’t make this ride). I'll be a member of
Team Fellowship, which was formed by Heather Jones.
Unfortunatley, Heather will not make it this year;
Cancer took her life in December of 2007.
And again on Saturday, September 26, I'll participate in
the Columbia, MD 24 Hours of Booty, where I hope to raise
$750 (with your help
course. Here, I hope to ride as many miles as I can in 24
hours around Columbia’s “Gateway Business Park
Loop,” a miles around the Austin area. This team was
formed for Team Tammy's Tata's, my girlfriend, who recently
finished her chemotherapy and is no undergoing radiation
treatment for breast cancer. You can read more about
Tammy's fight here
For all of my challenges, I ride in thankfulness in
particular for my father, a 10 year survivor, and for
Tammy, who, while finished with Chemotherapy and Radiation,
is still undergoing various treatments for pain,
sleeplessness, and other side affects associated with the
cure for this awful disease, and for all of those who have
had Cancer touch their lives.
Purchasing these items helps in the fight! They are also
what I use to improve my training, and I do recommend them!
