Sponsors needed for 65 mile National GRACE Foundation's Ride Against Cancer

I am riding in the National GRACE Foundation's Ride Against Cancer on 9/27/14, and need to raise $1000 to help send children who have been affected by pediatric cancer to college.

I completed the Avon Walk against Breast Cancer in 2012, for my friend Lori, who was going through aggressive treatment for breast cancer at the time. I'm happy to report Lori has been cancer-free for over two years now.
Lori is a nurse at Habsbro Children's Hospital, and one of her special patients was Grace Gallonio, a one-year old baby who had been diagnosed with cancer and had to undergo emergency surgery followed by four weeks on a respirator, prior to three rounds of chemotherapy and further surgeries. Today, Grace is a happy, healthy four-year old, who has been cancer-free for three years. Grace's father, Anthony Gallonio, has started the National GRACE Foundation to help pediatric cancer survivors go to college, as the expenses related to a cancer diagnosis and treatment are financially devastating to young families. I have accepted the challenge of riding 65 miles in September and am investing in a new bike. Now I need your help to help me reach my fundraising goal.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!

Here is some background on Grace and the Foundation:
