A Bike Race for a Cause

As many of you know, I was diagnosed 4 1/2 years ago with thyroid cancer. It wasn’t a fun experience but I lucked out with not having to go through chemo or radiation like some friends who have had cancer. I think everyone has a “cancer story” even though we don’t want to.

This summer, the Cleveland Clinic is hosting the first ever VeloSano bike race – but it’s obviously more than a bike race. It’s a movement to help end cancer. Think about that….a world where you don’t need to worry about a loved one, a friend or a coworker being diagnosed with cancer. Or yourself.

While I won’t be participating in VeloSano this year, my friend Tim Richards from New 102 Cleveland will be (they seriously cover Cleveland like no other station). Tim is going to be blogging about his experience training for the 48 mile race and sharing about why he is riding. I know I’ll be donating….will you consider donating? Every dollar raised stays in this community, providing needed research at the Cleveland Clinic.

Who would you ride for?
