I am thrilled to be participating again in Velo Sano for the third year to raise money for cancer research. I am riding for my husband Jeff Kelleher, also a member of this team, who is fighting prostate cancer. This would have been Jeff's third year as well, except that first year he broke his hip on the way to the Kick-Off Party, probably a result of this f***ing disease. Last year he finished the 25 mile ride, but this year hasn't been as good so we'll see how far he'll ride. But he will ride if there's any way because that's who he is. We are ready to roll, and I am riding on team Velo Vino with friends and famly that rocked for the last two years, as well as new team members who will rock this year - I love you all!
The importance of cancer research is with my family every day in that Jeff has benefitted from newer treatments, and we know the time will come when he will have to move on to another treatment. We want the next treatment to be the one. That can only come with breakthroughs in research. I am riding for Jeff and everyone else that is battling this awful disease.
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. 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!

How far will you go for the cure?
