Can you even believe this year will be the 5th year that Robbie and I will be riding in velosano for our dad?! It's amazing how quickly time passes (and amazing how Robbie has so patiently dealt with me all day, for those two days, that one weekend, each summer - thank you Robbie! Love you lots!).
Last years ride brought us a few new team members which we loved! Some of our Flying Frank cheerleaders turned into Flying Frank riders and we couldn't of been happier! We hope to add more riders to our team again this yearWe hope to add more riders to our team again this year! We were blessed with the Flying Frank Freeloaders (cycling friends) on the second day who always help bring us back into Cleveland as well. And as always, had our cheer squad at almost every single rest stop! :)
As many of you know, Robbie and I started this team and rode that first year for our dad, as it was ironically the same moment we had found out he had pancreactic cancer. That said cancer sadly took his life the following year but I will always cherish and remember the moment we made it back to Cleveland and saw his smiling face as we passed the finish line. And since that moment, we have added velosano weekend as a part of our family's way of honoring him and remembering him.
Once again, we're at it with the two day, over 200 miles rode for my dad. We love you and miss you everyday!

Cancer is awful, however the more research we have, the more options people are given for treatment of this horrible disease, the closer we are to hopefully beating it or at least giving our loved ones more time here on earth. This year, pancreatic cancer jumped up a notch as the third leading cause of cancer death, rising above breast cancer. In 2020, it is projected to rise to the second leading cause of cancer deaths. We obviously can't be the ones to stop it, but we sure can help with money going toward research.
VeloSano is more than a fundraising event. It’s more than simply a bike ride. VeloSano is a movement with the goal of bringing an entire community together to help one another. I’ve joined the movement in VeloSano, and I need your help to raise money for the cause. 100% of the money I raise will support lifesaving cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. The goal is to bring sustainable funding to cancer research by enlisting the passion and energy of thousands of people who wish to give back…including YOU!
Thank you for your support of my VeloSano fundraising campaign. Donate today!
How far will you go for the cure?
