Coast to Coast for a Cure
Dec 31, 2013


What does it take to cure for cancer?   A tremendous amount of effort, commitment and dedication by a team of researchers working tirelessly to develop and prove new treatments...  AND a tremendous amount of money to fund their efforts. 

To make sure that work continues with the great success it has over the past decade, we also have a team dedicated to raising those funds.  To do so, we will once again participate in the World's Toughest Bike Race... RACE ACROSS AMERICA (RAAM), riding 3000 miles from coast to coast to generate awareness and raise money funds to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! 

Introducing our 2014 Georgia Chain Gang Riders!


Over the past 10 years countless family, friends, acquaintances and even several people I've never met have rallied together to collective raise over $125,000 to support my fundraising efforts for this organization.  It IS making a difference... and for those who have contributed in the past, or are planning to do so now... THANK YOU!!

2014 will be the 4th year that "The Georgia Chain Gang" have participated in RAAM as a fundraiser for LLS, and my 3rd year on the team.  This year we will again have a very strong 8-rider team and I will be joining several others as the support crew.  Non-stop, we will cover 3000 miles in less than 7 days! 

Our 2012 Team:

Once again, we are riding in honor and memory of all those who have battled cancer. We honor the memory of our beloved friend and 2010 Crew Chief, Warren Bruno, who we lost in 2012, as well many of our own family members.  We also celebrate the victory of our survivors, such as our own Andrew Johnston, who is joining us this year as a rider.  We would like to dedicate each mile along the course to the honor or memory of our donor's loved ones as well. Simply enter their name in the comment field on the donation form and we'll take them along in spirit as we Race Across America to find a cure!

Donations are helping find new cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma TODAY, as well as providing patient and family support programs.  The research towards blood cancers is also directly extending into the treatments for many non blood-related cancers as well. 

Please make a tax-deductible donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and join our team's efforts to advance the research towards ures of all types of cancer.

Once again, THANK YOU for your continued support!
