Ride to end cancer.

My rock star of a dad is gearing up to join 3000+ others in an effort to END CANCER. I honestly can't think of anything more awesome.

On August 22, he will hop on his bike and pedal from Columbus, Ohio to Athens, Ohio, a 102-mile ride.

I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound easy.

I couldn't be prouder of my dad.

If you are interested in sponsoring him, please click here.

Every dollar raised goes directly to fund cancer research at The Ohio State University's James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. My dad has already covered the expenses for the "ride" portion of this event. All the financial support that he raises goes directly to END CANCER.

Here is a bit more information about the ride:

Pelotonia is a grass roots bike tour with one goal: to end cancer. Pelotonia raises money for innovative and life saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Driven by the passion of its cyclists and volunteers, and their family and friends, Pelotonia's annual cycling experience will be a place of hope, energy and determination. Pelotonia proudly directs 100% of every dollar raised to research. It is a community of people coming together to chase down cancer and defeat it.

I love you, Dad, and I can't wait to see you in Athens, Ohio on August 22!
