Dear Family and Friends,
I never knew how much I would love wearing Spandex.... it makes me feel..... so.... something!
Thank you for supporting my ride last year. You are so incredibly generous that I am shy to enlist your support again. If you have a philantrophic budget or are in a position to donate this year, please consider my effort to find a cure for cancer! Click the link below while it's fresh on your mind..... then I won't bother you anymore!! ;-)
Last year was not an easy ride. It was 80 degrees at the start and the three hours of riding made my legs cramp-up terribly... but my team raised $4500 and we were the third highest donors on Team Cleveland Indians (behind the GM)!!
All of us have been affected by cancer-- some intimately, some peripherally. I would like to let you know about an opportunity that we can all contribute to fight this disease while showing support for the survivors and the families that have lost precious loved ones.
Velosano is the Latin term to describe "swift cure". Velosano is also an event sponsored by The Cleveland Clinic, which is an entire weekend of cycling to raise money for lifesaving cancer research. As federal dollars for research have gone away, there is increased need for private donations to fund new breakthroughs.
I have committed to ride Velosano and I hope you will consider being my sponsor to help reach my goal of $3500. Last year the event raised $3 million!! The event is run entirely by volunteers and 100% of the money goes directly to cancer research.
The donations are also tax deductible and are made directly through the link below.
Dont delay! Do it today while it's fresh on your mind.
