In a few months from now I'll be riding in the 2009 Pan Mass Challenge! I'll be riding in honor of my mother-in-law who lost her battle against cancer 2 years ago, and also in support of my father-in-law who is currently battling stomach cancer (both pictured below in happier days).
The Pan Mass Challenge route is 192 miles over 2 days, it's a challenge for me as I only took up road biking a few months ago! You can read my story so far at a blog I started to catalog my road to the Pan Mass (don't hesitate to comment at the blog with any tips or encouragement, I could use it!):
With $35 million raised for the 2008 Pan Mass Challenge, this ride is the single largest contributor to the Jimmy Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. If you'd like to help me on my way to my fund raising goal I'd be very grateful indeed, every little bit helps!
Click here to donate via eGift at the 2009 Pan Mass Challenge site and help me meet my fund raising goal.
Thanks for taking the time to read - we need a cure.
