I ride to honor my privilege in my relationship to cancer. I am lucky not to have felt the direct impact of cancer among close family members or friends. I have, however, felt the indirect impact of cancer, particularly on friends whose parents are battling cancer. Because of this, I want to ride because I have the privilege of time and energy to do so when they can’t.
I ride for the knowledge. For people like me who are relatively distanced from cancer, it is easy to become complacent when it comes to cancer prevention. I hope to push back against this complacency by advocating for simple cancer prevention practices.
In my life, I've always struggled with how much I can actually do for the causes I am passionate about. It has influenced my career path and has drawn me to Texas 4000. Cancer sucks. Let's do something about it. Please reach out to me through email if you would like me to ride for someone, or if you would like to talk to me about the mission of Texas 4000.
