On Sunday, September 17, 2017, I will be hosting the 10th annual A Reason to Ride bicycle ride on the North Shore of Massachusetts to raise funds for leading-edge cancer research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC).
For me, this ride will be very emotional, but in another way it will give me incredible joy. It will give me time to reflect on how blessed I am to be a cancer survivor, and to think of others who are not able to join me on this quest. I hope other cyclists will join me on this ride (or walk!) to help raise critical funds for life-saving cancer research.
This event is a way I can give back to the wonderful people who have prayed for me and encouraged me along the way. Special thanks go to my wife, Judy, family and friends, who have been so supportive.
Proceeds raised through this bike ride go directly to Dr. Wong’s Brain Tumor Fund and to support cancer research at BIDMC. This research is very important to me and others living with cancer, and I hope you will join us this year!
