On the 19th of September this year I will ride the Fire Flies West again from San Francisco to Los Angeles (600 miles in 6 days). I am doing it again not because it is an excuse to spend 6 days in the saddle on one of the most beautiful roads in the world. I am doing it because I have never met a group of people so dedicated in their fight to beat Cancer. Last year I lost my father to it and this group of riders through the ride showed me the way back, and a way to help fight.
The charity we ride for is called City Of Hope in Los Angeles, they are pioneers in the fight, and an incredible organization. Last year we raised $250k (sounds better when you say a quarter of a million dollars), our goal this year is to beat that, and beat it well. $350K is our goal. I know we have a lot of organizations that want what we can give, understanding that I am going to ask for your support anyway. I can assure you that every single dollar you give to City Of Hope is put to good use. Anything you can give helps get us to our goal and makes soaking up the miles that little bit easier.
The link below enables you to donate and will be open from now all the way through until we reach Los Angels on September 24rd. Anything you can give is much appreciated.
