I'm Riding For

Chazz Irwin

Chazz Irwin

Last fall, I lost a longtime friend, Chazz, who had a rare form of Lymphoma. Having previously been in remission, the Cancer returned suddenly, acted quickly, and was not kind. There are many types of Cancer that we know so little about, including the one that Chazz had, and it is with cancer research that we hope to find answers. We find better beginnings and better ends, with research. While Chazz was an adult when he passed, he was and still is the child of his surviving parents. He was and is still someones' brother, someones' friend, and someones' love. Always a child at heart, he grew to have many friends and other important relationships with people who watched first-hand how Cancer affected him. Being an actor, he told me, with a smile, that he considered this his last act: A person living, and then dying, with a Cancer that no one quite understood. As a humble team of bikers, volunteers, and fundraisers, finding new ways to prevent and treat cancers are exactly why we ride every year. In addition to the many others that we know living with, or having had cancer, we pay tribute to Chazz’s memory. We hope to recognize Cancer’s effects on children, but also those who are not far removed from being children, those with children, those who love children, and everyone in their communities who knew them as children. Chazz always tried to have a direct impact on others; to make them laugh, and sing, and understand, right until the day he was gone. He also happened to be a big Golden Girls fan! So, this year please join The Golden Gears team in paying a special tribute to Chazz's memory. Help us help the Children’s Cancer Research Foundation by joining the team, donating, or reaching out to someone living with Cancer. And please, call your friends and tell them you love them. With love and hope, Golden Gears Team Captain, Jenny Buda

My Story

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

Why? Because 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.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

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.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.
