Four Guys... Four Bikes... One Mission... To Cure Leukemia & Lymphoma!


The Georgia Chain Gang did it again! We finished the 3,000-mile Race Across America (RAAM) on June 20th with a time of 7 days 9 hours 37 minutes. We raised over $80,000 in 2009 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Our goal this year is to raise more than $160,000 for our cause.


Our motivation? We race for our Honored Heroes, Brennan Simpkin and Warren Bruno, both of whom are currently undergoing treatment for blood cancer. We also race for the thousands of other blood cancer patients and survivors all across the country.


Our mission? To raise funds and awareness to help those affected by blood cancer and beat this deadly disease once in for all.


How can you help? Easy, make a donation. You can sponsor a mile along our trip for $10 per mile and just let us know to whom to dedicate the miles. We will include their name in our upcoming e-newsletters. If you would like to subscribe to our e-newsletter, simply drop us a line at gachaingang@mindspring.com.


Congratulations to Randy Leeder of Atlanta, Georgia for winning our Telluride Get-Away Vacation! Thank you to all who participated and supported.


You can also support the Georgia Chain Gang by following us on Facebook and Twitter, and tell your friends about us. You can also visit us at www.gachaingang.org.


Thank you to our crew, our families, our sponsors, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and most of all, our donors, for the support!


All the best,

Tammy Addison, Dave Armento, Warren Bruno, Matthew Corrigan, Jane Eastham, Mark Engemann, Frank Fuerst, David Gluck, Stephanie Grant, Dave Laws, Tony Myers, Dave Payne, David Rossetti, Jerome Rossetti, Marshall Siler

    "This was again for my brother Dave Thurston, who I skied with for his last time in TELLURIDE on January 2, 2010, before AML took his life on April 6, 2010. I will always remember that day, after he had recovered enough from his 7 months of chemo to finally ski again, before he went in for what sadly proved to be an unsuccessful stem cell transplant. I will always remember descending through the feathers of snow kicked up by his graceful, distinctive turns in the winter sun, fast and rhythmic. He was beautiful."
