Since 2004, I have been running marathons and riding 100-mile bike events to raise money for leukemia research. What started as a way to honor my good friend Al, who lost his fight with leukemia, has become a lifetime quest to help find a cure.
For the fifth year, I’m captain of a team of cyclists participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s 25th Annual Scenic Shore 150 bike tour. My team, the Lymphomaniacs, is more than 110 riders strong and our goal in recognition of the 25th anniversary ride is to raise $100,000 for blood cancer research. To help the team achieve this total, my personal goal is $10,000. I have started my fundraising efforts by making a personal donation of $250. I am asking for your support.
My personal lifetime goal is to raise $100,000, and with your help, I have reached over $67,000 since I started in 2004.
The Scenic Shore 150 is a two-day bike ride, July 23-24, 2016, along the “East Coast” of Wisconsin from Milwaukee to Door County traveling 75 miles each day. 1,500 riders will raise more than $1.2 million for blood cancer research and patient services.
Your support makes a difference. The Leukemia Society supports promising early-stage research and helps researchers take new drugs and treatments to the testing stage. The funds also provide grants for insurance co-payments to help families bear the high costs of cancer treatments.
Please join me by pledging your support. Your tax deductible donation will help bring us closer to finding a cure.

P.S. Please let me know if you would like me to ride in honor of someone touched by cancer. I will add their name to our 2017 team shirt.
