What’s this blog about???

In 2010 Pan Mass Challenge riders raised a total of $33 million for the Jimmy Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, with your help I’ve been able to raise over $9000 in the last 2 years. I’ll be doing it all again this year, 200 miles in 2 days, on a bike, from Sturbridge, MA all the way to Provincetown, MA. (:-)

Cancer research is a cause close to my heart. Our family has been touched by cancer like so many others. My mother-in-law Brenda Blake passed away in April 2007 from lung cancer.  Less than 2 years later, my father-in-law, Jim Blake or Pops as I call him, was diagnosed with stomach cancer and passed away shortly before my 2009 PMC ride.

I’m riding because I can, in the hopes that the money raised will one day end the pain and suffering cancer brings. With $270,000,000 raised since the PMC started 31 years ago, the PMC is the single largest contributor to the Jimmy Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

If you’d like to help me meet my fund raising goal, please click here.

Thanks!
