Thanks to the hard work of my brilliant cousin, I’ve been given an extra month to gather photos for my jersey.
In the event that you don’t remember, or were too lazy to click on that link, I’m offering anyone the chance to put a photo on my jersey of someone affected by cancer.
To place a photo on the jersey, simply donate $100 or more to my ride by May 1.
You can get your own jersey when you donate $250 or more by May 1–this is half the donation amount required last year.
I always carry with me the memories of all my family and friends affected by and sometimes lost to cancer. This is a way for you to make that tangible and permanent and to bear witness to how cancer has affected you.
Not one mile of the 200-mile route goes by without supporters cheering us from the roadside. The rest stops are full of volunteers who support us and each finish is lined with crowds. I was constantly asked by them who the people were on my jersey, and I was proud to share the stories behind the photos with all who asked.
The same happened on my training rides and bike commutes. One photo on a jersey tells a story to thousands of people, just as your donation supports, and perhaps saves, thousands of cancer patients.
Working together, we can make cancer history, but it takes all of us.
