Ride it again Polly!
Feb 14, 2014
I’m back again! In 2013 I returned to Team in Training to do America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride in Lake Tahoe. It had been a few years since I had done an event with the team. In coming back I realized just how much I missed being part of the team. Also I realized on a more personal level, just how important the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s work is in the fight against blood cancers. In the past few years I’ve had friends who have lost a sibling or a parent to one of the blood cancers. I also have a long time friend and work colleague who is entering his second year in remission.
Last year I had the privilege of training with Andy Fredman who was celebrating his 10th year in remission, and his 10th consecutive Lake Tahoe century. That’s quite an impressive streak in itself. It’s down right inspiring to think how much he has overcome to be where he is now.
That’s me with him before last year’s ride.
In 2014 I will reach the milestone of the big 6-0. I’m thankful for 60 years of good health and being able maintain a very active lifestyle of cycling and other sports. To celebrate my 60 years I’m back to do America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride once again. My goal is to raise at least $6,000. That’s $100 for each of my 60 years.
Please help me meet my goal as I continue help in the search for a cure.
