Racing to Save Lives
Paul and Jeanne take on Lake Tahoe in America's Most Beautiful Bike
Ride - All 100 miles of it!
It seems we all know about someone who has been affected by a blood cancer. When our nephew, Scotty was diagnosed with leukemia last year at the age of 16, it had a profound effect on our entire family. We realized that life is fragile and it can change in a moment for any of us. We decided that we CAN DO something to help. We joined Team in Training to show our support and to give hope. We will be riding a tandem road bicycle in America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride. We'll be riding 100 miles, with thousands of people with the same mission, around Lake Tahoe on 6/7/09. During the year, we ride in the woods on the mountain tandem and also along streets on the road tandem. For this event, we will be riding the road tandem and we begin our training on February 1st with a 15 mile bike ride. Each week, we will add 5 miles to the distance until our training goals are met. Because of the elevation, the hills, and the distance, this will be the most difficult event we have ever done. We are completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Please make a donation to support our participation in Team In Training and help LLS find a cure. We can't do it without you! If everyone gave $10, we would surely reach our goal!
