PRESS RELEASE: 100 More Miles

21 01 2011

Consider this the official press release from the Long Spin that I will once again be riding 100 miles in the mountains around Lake Tahoe with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training program for the sole purpose of raising money to fight and cure blood cancers: leukemia, lymphoma, Hodkin’s disease and myeloma. I should also note that my sister, Shani, will be riding as well. We will both be mentors for the team as well.

After this year I believe my family will have raised in excess of $25,000 in our endeavors with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. In total, my family has already raised money to complete two marathons and four 100-mile bike rides. This year will raise that to SIX 100-mile bike rides.

We keep doing this because we haven’t found a cure yet. Someday we will. Every day and every dollar gets us one step closer. We can and we will find a cure.

That’s about all I’m going to say at this point. Soon I will have my online fundraising page setup and will have more info ready to pass on. Stay tuned.

And before I go I will leave you with one photo that will serve as inspiration throughout training and the ride.

Consider yourself press released.

WHAT AN OBJECT LESSON IN SUFFERING IN ORDER TO CAUSE PAIN. FAUSTO IS DEEP IN THE HURT LOCKER… AND LOOK AT SWARTHY DWARF ROBIC’S CHAIN: HE’S FIRED UP HIS COTTAGE OF WATTAGE ALRIGHT. WHEN YOU NEED AN ARMY JEEP TO KEEP UP, YOU KNOW THEY’RE TRULY BIG RINGING. ~Photo and caption shamelessly stolen from http://www.bigringriding.com

I am very proud of all of you (You, Dad, Shani and Dena) for what you have accomplished over the years. Your dedication to the cause-bless all of you.
Uncle Randy, Kay Lierman, Bob Callahan’s Daugher-in-law didn’t conquer the fight but you are making a difference in other lives-we have to believe in the hope that there will be a cure. Love you. Mom
