My little buddy Halston punched Leukemia in the mouth. I'm going to ride as hard as I can for Halston, all of his friends at CHOP, and beyond. Up!

My Story

14 Feb 2019

This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? I've got a few reasons. 1. The big picture: right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week. 2. I've experienced what it's like to see a child go through and thankfully come out of the other side of a devastating cancer diagnosis and treatment. My little buddy, Halston (the grandchild of a co-worker) was diagnosed with Leukemia. He fought long and hard and won! 3. Anything we can do to help decrease the suffering of children in any way is a top priority in my book.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer. Join me in supporting this worthy cause!

Thank you.

  • $1100 from my goal!
    1 Mar 2019

    I started this thing with a goal of $500. A very generous circle of friends made it clear early on that this cause was way more valuable than that. I increased my goal to $5000. I am confident that over the next three months leading up to this challenge that I can meet it. Please feel free to share this with your friends and family. The support has been very motivating and I'm averaging well over 30 miles a week on the bike. I'll need to be at a solid 50 miles a week by June and I have no doubt that I can make it happen. I remain at the top of the fundraiser list for the country thanks to you and our team is sitting in the top spot as well, thanks to some pretty awesome teammates. Thanks again or all of your support, kind words, and generosity!

  • Crushing goals and recruiting!
    15 Feb 2019

    I’m blown away by the generosity of my friends! My goal was $500 and as of this afternoon I’m the second biggest money raiser in the country. It’s early and this will change as 10’a of thousands of riders join in approaching June. It would sure be cool to hit that number one spot for a moment! I’ve been recruiting additional riders for the team in the hopes that we can show out big for this ever so important cause. Thank you so much for giving. I’m inspired to exceed my goal because of you! If you want to join the team, please do. Let’s help do our part to crush childhood cancer!
