I was driven to this cause by my Grandad, my Oma, my Uncle, my best friend’s father, and a young boy I taught swim lessons to - each who lost their fight to Cancer. I ride for them, and I ride for those who they left behind so unwillingly, for the ones that Cancer took them from. I ride for my Grandmom, who lost her husband, for my Mom who has lost not only her Father, but her brother to this disease. I ride for my Dad who lost his Mother, the woman who raised him and brought him and his sisters to the US after his father died. I ride for the Fleming Family who lost their child. I ride for my best friend, who lost her father. I ride to put an end to the terrible disease that took my loved ones, and so many others’ loved ones away from them.
I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I've been inspired by the work of Texas 4000 for Cancer and wanted to support the mission by raising money as part of my participation on the 2020 Texas 4000 Team riding from Austin to Anchorage all to support the fight against cancer. The more people that know about Texas 4000, the greater the impact in the fight against cancer, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
