Fundraising Goal
Donor List


You all know why I ride.

I'm angry. I'm sick of going to funerals. 

I don't want to have to be a support system for other caregivers.   I hate that I can be completely compassionate and relate to how once you're diagnosed with Cancer, your life is no longer your own.  Your job is to be available based on doctor appts, tests, results and treatment.   You cannot plan anything in your life;  you're not sure if you're even going to live.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.  It's time to tell Cancer to suck it. 

You know, GFYC!!

In addition to why I ride, I'm kicking it up a notch this year.  I'm taking on an "EXTREME RIDE", which means I'm committing to riding all 4 sessions.   That's 3 hours of riding (4 45 min sessions) which I'm doing as part of my commitment to health and wellness.  We only get one body to live in and we need to take care of it.   Obesity, sugar and heart health are all leading contributors to the spread of Cancer cells, and since I want to live a long and FULL life, I need to do my part in trying to avoid hearing those dreading 3 words: "Yes, it's Cancer." 

SO, please join me in the fight.  Join me in riding.  Cheer team #gfyc on.  Donate whatever you're comfortable with.   Support us, and until we erradicate Cancer, know you can count on me if you do hear those 3 shitty words.


I'm raising money for rare cancer research. Will you join me by making a donation? Your gift will directly help people who have few, if any, treatment options. Through Cycle for Survival, progress is accelerating. We arm scientists with the resources to explore pioneering ideas, discover new therapies, and collaborate to find the next breakthrough.

Why this matters to me:

50% of People with Cancer Have a Rare Cancer
When combined, about half of all patients fighting cancer are fighting a rare cancer. These are cancers we know — such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid, ovarian, brain, pancreatic, and all pediatric cancers — yet research is largely underfunded.

100% Goes to Lifesaving Research Led by MSK
Every dollar you give will advance innovative studies and clinical trials led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Discoveries made by MSK revolutionize how cancer is diagnosed and treated, helping patients across the country and around the world.

6 Months for Fast Impact
Not only does every dollar go to research, your gift will be in the hands of doctors and researchers within six months of the events. As a donor, you will learn about the projects supported and the breakthroughs made.

Thank you for your support!
