This year I've decided to take on a big challenge that can make a big difference but I need your help. If you'd like to hep make a difference fighting Cancer, please read on.
The Fireflies are a cycling group that ride for those who suffer.
They have inspired me to ride for those who shouldn’t have had to suffer; those that paid the ultimate price too early in life. People like my Father who died aged 41, when I was only 13 - I doubt I’ll ever truly appreciate what I missed out on though I get an idea as I see my own children grow up. My dear friend, Luis Flores, who left behind a beautiful young family - love you Pilar, Diego and Carolina. Maurizio Marchesini - an inspirational and authentic boss and mentor to me and many others. They should still be here - I miss them all.
Would you please consider sponsoring my ride via a donation to City of Hope.
City of Hope is a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Their researchers discover treatments that revolutionize how patients across the nation battle their diseases. And their physicians, surgeons and expert staff give life-saving care with compassion and comprehensive support. Since its beginnings more than a century ago, City of Hope has touched the lives of countless individuals facing the challenge of disease and has given them hope.
I have made a commitment to City of Hope and I’m working hard to be ready for the 6 day, 620 mile ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Every penny you can spare will go directly to the City of Hope. I am personally covering all my costs for this ride - travel to California, food & lodging, and the Fireflies support crew cost.
