Last year, my life was changed by the word cancer as my dad was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Just two days before VeloSano last year, is when I was given the news. My dad. The guy who has a need for speed, loves small engines, anything car related, and jet skiing. My dad. The very reason I rode to help fund cancer research to help others in need, was now effecting my life. Ok, here comes the full circle part. My dad, is going to be recieving stem cell transplant. The type of stem cell transplant he is getting wouldn't have been made possible without funding from VeloSano. Odd how I read this in the annual report, just a few days prior to finding out my dad had cancer.
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, because you never know who you are going to end up helping - like my dad. 100% of the money I raise will support lifesaving cancer research at Cleveland Clinic, with the potential of some of those of funds coming to Akron General. 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?
