Eight Riders, 3,000 Miles, One Purpose: Helping Raise Funds to End Blood Cancers
Nov 29, 2013

Tackling the world's toughest bicycle race for the fourth time to raise funds to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society



In June 2014, I will once again tackle Race Across America (RAAM) – known as the world’s toughest bicycle race – as part of an eight-person team racing non-stop for 3,000 miles from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD … all in the name of a cure.


In my prior three years of racing RAAM as part of the Georgia Chain Gang, we have raised almost $400,000 to benefit the Georgia Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world’s leading charity organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. LLS's mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.


This year, our goal is to raise more than $200,000 – and to make it from coast to coast in five days.


We race in remembrance of our friend, hero and beloved “Crew Daddy” Warren Bruno who passed away in May 2012 after a long fight with lymphoma. Warren’s grace, determination and incredible passion for life is a special inspiration to all of us. We ride for Warren and all those affected by blood cancers - and I am especially honored to be racing in 2014 alongside teammate, honored hero and Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia survivor Andrew Johnston.


Thank you for supporting me in this important mission by making a tax-deductible donation to LLS now.
